Karate Kid Demo Weekend

It was a Karate Kid Demo weekend!

The karate school had made arrangements with a local movie theater to do demos throughout this past weekend.    Along with the demo team, Sifu made arrangements for other students - children & adults, to join in.   Our children don't just learn karate with each other, they have also developed friendships.  The adults are also very friendly.  The school really is a place for people to support each other.

Sifu spent just about the entire weekend at the movie theater.  The students & parent supporters were there for more than just the demo.  We hung out for almost the whole day.  In fact, Saturday a bunch of us went for lunch at the Thai/Japanese restaurant next to the theater.

I took almost 400 pictures from Friday night & Saturday.  Can you imagine how many more I'd have taken if I were able to be there Sunday?  (Unfortunately, I woke up sick as a dog Sunday morning.)  I was able to allow Erin to attend because her hero Brittany agreed to watch over her.  That is one teen who I don't want to meet in a lit alley let alone a dark alley!

And how cool is it that a few of our friends were able to pop in!  Thanks Minouche, Delfim & Yasmin! Erin was thrilled to see you guys!

I am in complete awe of your daughter! She has such an amazing inner and outer strength. She truly is an inspiration to both children and adults alike. I read on FB that she is going to be testing for her brown belt. That is such an awesome accomplishment. I really think I would like to see if Natalie would enjoy martial arts. I thought maybe it would boost her confidence and ability to focus.

What great pictures, wish we could have been there in person to cheer Erin on!
You can tell your cutie that she has inspired her g-dsister to start learning karate. Maybe in August Erin can give Kerri a few tips!
Way to go Erin!
