First Karate Lesson

Quinn had his first private karate lesson today and he loved it.  This martial arts studio was recommended by a friend and I love that they do 3-4 private lessons to get the kids up to speed before they start them in the class.   His instructor, Master Del, is just the right combination of firm and fun.   

After watching the first lesson I know this is absolutely the right thing for Quinn right now.  He will build strength, balance, focus, and confidence.  And also learn a little korean too!
Practicing stance and punches.  My karate knowledge is zero so bear with me.  

The roundhouse kick.  

Working on how to move forward while carrying a weighted ball.   Also remembering which left foot to put forward.

Preventing attacks from above.

Practicing squats…

…to avoid side attacks.
