Oldest son back in his high school marching days in black uniform.

Youngest son who shed a lot of blood, sweat and tears earning that first degree black belt.  He worked hard and I was proud of him.

      Thanks Yvonne. That is awesome about your sons. I know that was a lot of hard work. What type of karate do they take? Both of mine had to stop taking when they moved away to college. My oldest had his third degree brown belt. My youngest got his 2nd degree black before he left for college and has just recently started taking classes again. He just loves it.

        That’s so awesome Gail!!! WOW! I’m impressed! Mine are 1st degree decided black belts in Taekwondo. They stopped after they reached their black belts, but you never know….they may pick it up at a later time. 🙂

        Mine took Wado. Actually my oldest son left karate when he started high school as he decided to do marching band which took up most of his time. He hated to leave karate but realized there was no way he could do both. Then he was off to college, so never went back to karate. My youngest son finally found a dojo where he lives (in another state) that teaches the style he learned but he said it’s still so different from what he learned. He prefers the dojo and teacher here.

        I know, it’s hard to change schools and teachers because everyone is different! I am impressed by your sons! 🙂
