Alex Update - Karate Training - First Sparring Class


Only You - Theme From Winter Sonata








Alex loves his training.

Since becoming a Purple belt...
he became eligible to attend the sparring class.

This was his first class for sparring.

He did fairly well on the heavy bags and with light sparring.

Although he was quite tired after the class
(it was right after a regular class)...
he really enjoyed it.

He still lifts weights twice a week and trains in Karate
4x a week.  In one month, when I retire, I shall have 
him doing other daily exercises (hitting a bag...jogging)
as well.

Basic physical fitness is basic care for the body...
as well as... the mind.

To be in shape is to have your body running efficiently...
the mind sharp and unhindered...
the mood regulated.

It provides a strong foundation to living
your life well.

The key to fitness with anyone...
especially children...
is to start out slowly...
being careful to not overwhelm them...
allowing it to become a passion.

The whole goal is to allow physical fitness
to become a way of life...
to allow it to be the great life enhancer
and extender.

They start out with a love and passion
for the activity...

they end up having a love and passion
for life.
