Tae Kwon Do

My boys take Tae Kwon Do. Kai has been doing some form of Martial Arts for years. Last August he switched to Tae Kwon Do. He was a little frustrated at feeling like he was starting over, but he dove right in and is doing great.
His current ranking is Blue Belt. In March he participated in the ITA Mid-Atlantic Regional Tournament. He won 3rd place in sparring! Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of that, but here is a video of him doing his forms at the tournament:

Roan just started in August and he has been doing great, too! His current ranking is Green Belt. Since he earned his green belt, he's has been able to start sparring and he's very proud of himself!

Roan Quote: Kai pondered, "How do you make marshmallows?" Roan said, "You just get some marsh stuff, and mix it with mallows!"

OK so both the fighting pictures are great...but if I had to face one of those 2 in a back alley, I'd take my chances with Kai!
