Johnny boy and I went with our neighbor, Gavin, to his karate class. I must admit that I used to be anti-karate but after watching this group of 5 year olds, I changed my opinion completely. The pictures are only the most action packed ones, but don't accurately represent the entire lesson. Most of the time, the kids had to be standing at attention and their instructor was teaching about self-discipline and focus and the need to be under control. I can't think of anything better to teach my 5 year old. Plus, they role-played instances of "stranger danger" where you had to run away shouting "You're not my daddy!" if anyone approached them offering candy or a ride home. Did anyone else listen to the Safety Kids? I have got to get that for my children. It's smart to be safe and it's smart to be careful. It's smart to be a safety kid.
