Bruce Lee

There thought process is actually entertaining.  Plus, their reasoning... who knows where that comes from, but if you can't laugh, you shouldn't have kids.  Heck, you may be too serious! Anyways, today during one of my kids classes we were practicing a few kicking drills.  One of them involved a front leg front, duck, than a back leg front kick.  Keep in mind this is my beginners class, and most students have been training less than 4 months. Well, some of the students weren't ducking completely.  Actually, they were simply tilting their head sideways.  Obviously that was wrong.  So, as any good instructor :-) I had to correct them.  I stopped the class and told them how the duck should be done.  Than went on a tangent about them not being Bruce Lee yet... Now, keep in mind that these kids are between 6 and 12.  Bruce Lee isn't in their generation.  In addition, I have some focus pads that say "Bruce Lee" with a Chinese Kanji. I go on to ask them "do you guys even know who Bruce Lee is?" I get all sorts of answers! The one that stands out... "Yea, he's the guy that made these pads!" ... No joke... Parents are laughing.  I'm laughing.  It was classic. This is why I continue to teach Karate.  Pure and harmless entertainment.  :-) Javier Lozano, Jr. Owner / Head Instructor NASKA World Champion Certified Personal Trainer Child Safety Instructor 3rd Degree Black Belt
