The Karate Kid

This moment has been in the making for 7 years.  Ever since we found out I was pregnant, my husband has dreamed of the day he can take our son to karate lessons (not to be sexist, but the girl has no interest). Our son turned 3 just a few weeks ago, and my husband wasted no time signing him up for martial arts lessons.  My husband is a 2nd degree blackbelt in Tae Kwon Do, and a 1st degree black belt in Seido Karate, practicing for over 25 years.  He scoped out several local karate places to ensure the integrity of where the boy would train.  More importantly, his favorite movie is the Karate Kid, seen probably hundreds of times. Ok I love it too - who doesn't? ("Daniel LaRusso's gonna fight????")  Our son isn't named Daniel by accident, although my husband claims there's no connection.  :)  The next Karate Kid? A big shout out to High Performance Tae Kwon Do!
