Friday afternoon was Adam’s first lesson at USA Karate. We received a free lesson after stopping by their booth at the Germantown Festival. I’ve always wanted Adam to be involved with martial arts– his father insisted on Muay Thai [as that was his training]– but I had no clue the genre best suited to my son’s needs. Karate seemed to be a good launching point so we’ll go from there. Check out the brief video of his kicks on YouTube.
My ‘Little Ninja’ loved his first lesson. Bapa, Maris, and I loved watching him. He can’t wait to return as a regular. So much so that he’s decided that karate comes before BMX or any league sport as his activity for the year. I hope that karate will work wonders for his discipline, focus, motor skills, confidence, behavior, and serve as a positive outlet for his energy.
Little Ninja Creed:
I promise to say “I CAN DO IT” and to eat healthy foods.
I promise to do what I’m told with excitement and to always be good to others.
I promise to never misuse what I learn in class.
We are a Black Belt school.
We are motivated.
We are Dedicated.
We’re on a quest to be our BEST!
Note to self: Stop dyslexicizing ‘marital’ and ‘martial.’ Why do I do this 90% of the time? The first word depicts the relations and/or status between the dearly betrothed whereas the second serves as an umbrella term for karate, taekwondo, jiu jitsu, etc. I always tend to use them incorrectly at the most inopportune times. Oops.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
