Son Devin just qualified for his third-degree black belt. Proud of the kid.
Awesome!! That's a great accomplishment. What discipline(s)?
My daughter was on track to be the youngest black belt at her studio run by a guy who we thought really cared about martial arts. Then his life got sort of crazy and he closed the studio with very little notice stranding a bunch of kids, including one that was only about a month away from testing for his black belt. She's now not sure if she wants to continue or not. It's also a little tough to try to find a new place with the restrictions in place, so we're going to let her take some time off and urge her to get back into it in a little while.
That is a terrible story about your daughter's school. I hope she finds another as soon as the virus is not as big a threat.
Ah, Kajukenbo is what his belt says. Had to look it up, but that seems like a really interesting mashing of a bunch of styles.
That’s awesome. Never heard of kajukenbo.
I boxed in high school and studied hand-to-hand combat and jiu-jitsu in the Navy, but he would probably kick my ass if I was still young and fit. :)
How old is your son?
Martial arts can be great solution to attention deficit disorder in smaller children. Saw it work on a 6 year old boy who was very disruptive at school, at home could not sit for 10 minutes to do his home work. ADD as a diagnosis was unknown then but a doctor suggested martial arts. Once he started he settled down, so much so he was straight A student right through college and is well respected researcher in Boston. He is still practicing his skills.
That kids too handsome to be your kid. I call shenanigans.
I keed. That's a lot of commitment. Good for him.
His mom is hot.
My son is 37 also. It is really great to have a son at that age, observe him and what he does with pride. Three thumbs up to you David.
