My 7 year old grandson is something else! I doubt you have ever seen such energy. Karate is the perfect thing for him. He excels in Karate. He has a high orange belt in less than 2 years, and he has been invited to join a "Black Belt Club" that is by invitation, and specially designed for the children who show promise in Karate. I attended his class last night. He is the youngest in there and he looked awesomne!
