Jason starts Karate

About 6 weeks ago now Jason saw at Karate school in an episode of Sesame Street and he was intrigued. He talked about it a bunch and eventually asked me if he could take classes. I looked around for a bit trying to find a good fit, etc.

We settled on the Dojo in Roswell. Yesterday was Jason's first class. It was an assessment class by the owner to determine if he is ready for class. I have to say, I was pretty impressed with Jason's focus during the class.

When we met with them about a week ago, they mentioned that kids need to do 5 things around the house without their parents asking them to do it to earn their white belt (the first belt). Jason was really excited about it, and he did a great job (picked up toys, cleaned table, etc. without being asked.) Jason and Alex really had fun with it and within two days he had done his 5 things. He brought the sheet in to his assessment class and proudly handed it to his teacher, so he gave him his white belt!
