Hi Marlon,

Great to hear. Are you teaching them or are they learning from someone else? Before I started teaching my children I wanted to make sure it was something they would enjoy so I started them with my old instructor for a few months. It wasn't long after that I realized it would stick, atleast for now, so I brought them into my classes. It makes for interesting dynamics at times but it is really fun to be such a big part of their progress.

Indeed a great reason to be excited. The Martial Art bug has bitten them, i hope they stay infected by it. It is really contagious!

That would have been a great otion except that i am the only sk instructor around these parts so... I have seen some of those intersting dynamics already, but it will smooth out. I re inforced with the black belts that they are to be treated like any other student. We will see. How are your children doing? Are they yet infected with the kempo addiction?

They are doing great, although I bet they wish they were just any other student. I never wanted any of my students to feel favoritism and because of that I am much harder on my own. My daughter is turning the corner to teenager being 12 this year so she is less then enthused at times but she doesn't have a choice :) (dad told her when I am convinced you can fend off a bigger and stronger man then it is up to you if you want to continue). My oldest boy 8, wants to be a fighter so he is gung ho and my youngest 22 months has a better side kick then a lot of kids in his brothers class (going to be very difficult to keep him OUT of class until he is old enough). Just to clarify I do not teach the 22 month old but he watches every class I teach (about 24 a week) and goes to all of my lessons.
