His First Time in Martial Arts

I hear you talking about putting kids in martial arts... so I decided to put my almost 4-year-old boy into "Kendo." Today was his first class.

Here was the best part: Although he was the youngest in the class, he kept up with the other kids.

Worst part
: watching him be out of his comfort zone since he is the only kid that doesn't speak Japanese.

Funniest part:
when he picked up the Shinai (bamboo stick that represents a sword) for the first time and held it like a rifle.

I'm so very proud of my little boy for trying something new. I know it's going to be great for him.

Thanks so much for your support for us stay-at-home moms.
