Jonny breaking stuff

My son Jon is taking karate classes through the local park district. He really loves it and I hope the experience will help him develop self-confidence and discipline. The following video is from his first test, for his white belt with orange stripe. Breaking a board with a kick was the final part of this test. He was so proud of this achievement that he took the broken board pieces to school and family gatherings.

He is now in his third six-week session with the "Lil' Dragons." He is learning Kajukenbo, a hybrid of many different martial arts disciplines, and says he wants to be "the best ninja ever!" Harding's Family Martial Arts runs the courses through the park district. They do a decent job and come highly recommended.
