Our Karate Kid!!!

In Feburary and March Brayden took a Karate class. He loved it. It was a class offered through the city and it was Perfect. I don't really want to sign up the kids for a huge commitment right at first. I would rather them try out a lot of different sports or activities and see what they like. Well Brayden LOVED Karate!! During the class he improved so much and became more flexible and more focused. Brayden wore LeGrand's old Karate suit...it was soooo cute!! Check our our very own "Karate Kid!!"






We all loved going to watch Brayden. His karate class was at Springville High, so it made it really easy for LeGrand to run over from the Seminary. We are lucky to have a dad who is so involved in our lives!! It was also fun because the room was right by the indoor track, so I took advantage of that;) What fun times.


Brayden's teacher(a 3rd degree black belt) broke a board with her hand...she made it look really easy. She said it is all in your mind, that you just forget about the board and go right through it and it will happen. Here is Brayden trying it at class...under here are some video's of us trying to do it at home. We tried and tried and then LeGrand broke it on his first time...gurrrrr.. but that's LeGrand for you. We recorded them and thought they were pretty funny. Enjoy!!
