Matthew’s Yellow Belt

IMG_0500Matthew was in karate classes before we moved to California and now that we are back, he has gotten right back into karate again. But this time he is in a class for older children and it is more serious. The first thing that happened was during a tournament that he attended, he won second place. We have a video from that tournament below and a picture of him with the trophy. We were very proud of him.

But he was also working very hard to earn his yellow belt. And about a month ago, he tested for his yellow belt and got it. Leading up to the tournament and his yellow belt, he seemed to be getting discouraged with karate. Now, he is as eager as ever to attend his sessions and continues to enjoy himself. If only we could get him into some swimming lessons too…
