Sometime last year, a local Karate school went to Colin's daycare on a day he wasn't in public school and did a Karate lesson with his class (they still do this 2x a month). He had talked a lot about it then and so the thought had crossed my mind to sign him up for lessons but I never followed through. This year when the behavior issues associated with school started, the idea came into my head again and so we called and set up a trial lesson with Master Dave. Chris took him to the first lesson and he LOVED it.
Because the lesson went so well, we decided to sign Colin up for private lessons with Master Dave. We really think Master Dave is PERFECT for Colin as he has a lot of patience, is great with praising him for the things he does well and for following directions, but is also stern with him when necessary. I could tell from the first day that Dave felt comfortable working with Colin and the simplest thing to say is that he is just really great with him. Colin works the entire 30 minutes with him and does a really good job listening to what he has to say.
We are looking forward to all of the many things that Colin will learn from participating in Karate. There are so many benefits to it and it's appearing to be an activity Colin really likes.
