green and breaking board

he came home from karate so proud himself...
after much training and practice
he attained his green belt.

 every monday and wednesday and occasional thursday night,
 he has taken on the task of cycling to his dojo (japanese martial arts centre) 
to learn the discipline of karate.

last night was extra special,

he came bouncing through the back door
with two pieces of wood
and the biggest grin on his face...

apparently he was able to break it with one contact.

the exact move that split the wood was reenacted at least a dozen times.

even after an hour and a half session of karate and kickboxing, 
the belt and the broken board had him so excited that
the energy coming out of him was electric.

he needed a way to calm down,
he need a release for all his teenage vigor.

thank goodness,
because harlow needed a walk.



  1. Congratulations to him, what an accomplishment. I bet you are a proud mama, and I also bet Harlow was a happy dog :)

    Hope you had a lovely day.
