Karate Kids


Lucas and Jacob have started taking karate this summer and the excitement is over the roof!! Lucas went to a karate camp several years ago for a week and fell in love - he's asked me no less than 500 times during the last 3 years if he could take karate and Jacob - well karate is just Jacob. Jacob is into motorcycles,dirt bikes,cops,karate,wrestling - that's just him.



When we went to sign them up the owner of the building of course told me how it was more than just karate and that it was about self discipline and respect which by the way can't hurt Lucas or Jacob. Things have been tough around here lately and their behavior could definitely use some improvement. During his speech I felt like I was sitting in the principals office!!! Seriously I couldn't wait to get out of there I was so nervous! Glad I'm not the one that has to see him twice a week!!!

As soon as we got home they were ready for their first class and since they had to wait a couple of days they tried on their uniforms and attempted to show me some moves :) Lucas was so funny - he thinks since he had karate camp for a week he knows so much more than Jacob does so he had to teach him a couple of kicks. Jacob calls the roundhouse kick the rathouse kick :)




They've had 3 classes so far and love it! All they talk about all week is when they are going to get to go back to karate. They both have already decided they want to get black belts so it could be interesting!

My boys want to take karate,but the only place here is like $100 for each kid a month! That is just crazy!

Hope the boys continue to enjoy it!

Hope they enjoy it. Sounds like a fun speech you had to listen to lol. It will be fun to see their belt color change. Thanks for sharing.

Aww love the pics! Joe took Tae Kwon Do classes a few years ago and loved it. As soon as we can afford them again he's going to go back.
