Karate is a sport that Papa Bear and I had not initially thought about for M&H. As college students we met at the Community Pool while teaching swim lessons and lifeguarding. We had swimming, soccer, track, cross-country, baseball and other adventure sports in our back-pocket. We did not expect to love this fighting sport. First mention was from Haywood's kindergarten teacher - (he would be really good at this) and then from him (I really want to do this) so we jumped right in. We have all found a new sport and one that is already at the top of our list of favorites.
