Growing Up

The Birthday Boy
Sam celebrated his 11th birthday
Wednesday night, Nov. 4th

I'm not only late in reporting Sam's birthday, but also of his recent advancement. He received his blue belt October 1st. He also was invited to participate in another class that will include archery, swordsmanship, learning Japanese, and calligraphy. It's a little different than just the punching agenda and he's always wanted to do it and was pleased that he could participate. It will be a while before he advances to his green belt and this will provide him with some experiences that are well rounded in gaining a better understanding of the martial arts.

Four-character Idiom:

Kachou Fuugetsu

Flower, Bird, Wind, Moon

Experience the beauties of nature,
and in doing so learn about yourself.
