    Steven passed his karate grading yesterday.:thumbsup:

    He's now a 5th kyu which is a blue belt at his club. Next belt up and they'll let him loose with nunchucks. :mental:

    Only 5 grades to go to black now.

    You're quite safe. Whenever he goes to the sparring class he just runs away from his opponent giggling. :unsure:

    Potentially another 2 years but there is a lot of work to be done, Japanese to be learnt, weapons to master.

    His sensei is very good with him, she understands he has some balance problems and a few behavior issues but she works hard with him and he responds positively to her. She even puts a special "good behavior" stripe on his belt which he could lose if he's too naughty. :lol: I'm very proud of him because he doesn't give up even when it gets tough for him.
