These kids all worked so hard. It was Jed's first karate grading so we weren't sure what to expect. Two hours of hard out karate at the grading, a bunch of training and practice...an orange belt! It was a good day. I loved seeing how proud they all were. I've watched some of those kids arrive with what looks like pretty low self confidence and seeing them find their place in the dojo and watching their heads get carried higher as they go through training is nothing less than special. Jed is trying to get me to go to the women's karate class but I dunno if it's my thing. I think the Free dance Sundays might be more up my alley!
