Tae Kwon Do

My boys are taking Tae Kwon Do, and it's been a great experience. I know some are wary about equipping boys with martial arts training, but if taught correctly, they learn more than just physical skills. The instructor is from Korea, the birthplace of Tae Kwan Do, and you can see that he enjoys sharing an art form from his native country. It's not a big, fancy, money making studio run by some big, meat head in a black belt. We saw a few of these before meeting the boys' current instructor, and the difference was night and day.
Our boys leave tired and happy. They have spent time with friends, and have received a shot of self confidence from their instructor. So far this has been great!

"Be humble"

The boys look so grown up. It is good for the boys to learn to be humble and respectful of fellow students while they are learning their skills. Sounds like you have found a great sport for Jack and David to do together which is also nice.
Won't be long till Anna starts to do her little kicks!
Love to all Nannie
