Lucas has joined the local Martial Arts Academy. He was so excited to learn karate and has been excited about it since the beginning. He has been fun to watch. His awkwardness has turned into skill which will keep building with ever class. I love that they teach kids to stand up for themselves, but they also teach that they should so respect to others and that fighting and bullying is not the way to become a good and wise person.

Lucas won the wrestling exercise. His teacher even thought he should come to the other class.
He sees talent in this kid.
Here his getting his stripe. He was more than excited to show off his new stripe.
