Zachary's first karate recital.

Three-year-old fists of steel!

Zachary has been attending karate lessons given by Karate Charlie. We recently attended a recital of the skills the youngsters are learning. About thirty kids ran onto the stage and demonstrated patience, gymnastic skills, and great enthusiasm. They mostly ranged in age from four to six—Zachary was the youngest, at three, but had no problem keeping up with the older kids in attention or skill.

Here's Zachary with Karate Charlie, who prefers that title to the more traditional Sensei.

He got a medal for participating in the program, which his mother has since mounted in a frame. Zachary's first medal!

The recital was very interesting and informative, and visitors to our home can see the entire thirty-minute video!
