Karate Lessons

We have been talking for a while now about getting Victoria involved in some sort of activity. We went through a lot of options. My husband had mentioned Karate. At first I was reluctant because to be honest I was not familiar with it. The other day I came across a booth set up for a learning center right down the road. I made an appointment for an initial examination. I was trying to explain to Vic what it was but I knew she would just have to wait and see.

Today we took her over there for her initial appointment. They were so great with her. I was pleasantly surprised. She took to it right away. Right off the bat they started teaching her discipline and respect. She has always had good manners. It was awesome to see that reinforced. I had my doubts as to whether she was ready for something like this. After watching her with the instructor I knew she would do good at it.

She goes back tomorrow and Thursday for a few more classes to evaluate how she does. I think this will be great for her and I cannot wait to see how she does with it.

Sounds like fun. I love how Karate has visual goals, I think that is so helpful for kids.

One of my bloggy friends, Amy at Parenting with Duct Tape, has a daughter who is really into karate.

I only have boys, so you can't count me.
