My karate kid

Standard

Zener is now in Karate!  He started taking it a few weeks ago, and I think it is really helping him discover his strengths.  He seems to be gaining confidence in himself and his own abilities, and the knowledge that perseverance pays off.   His instructors seem like excellent mentors and role models for him.  They teach with sensitivity, warmth, humor, and discipline.

Not to mention learning awesome moves!

This also means we get to watch kung-fu and karate movies, and he absolutely loved Karate Kid (yes, the 1984 original).  He was inspired to write his own martial arts student pledge (based loosely on the one they recite at his dojo) and create his own practice routine.

I am so excited to watch Z on this journey!
