Karate Kid

Carson went to his first karate class today. He LOVED it!! Derek said he was beaming during the whole class. He loved the exercises and really paid attention and tried hard to learn the moves. He was in a class with 7-12 year olds. Since he is just 7, they are going to move him down to the 5-6 year old class until he gets caught up and then they will move him up to the more intense class when he is ready. I have been wanting to get him into karate for a long time. It is a perfect sport for him. A sport where he can advance at his own pace and not feel like he has to compare himself to others. I am so happy he has found something that he seems to really enjoy that doesn't have a joystick or screen attached!!Karate kidCarson
