In February both my middle son and my hubby tested for their next belts in karate. Our middle child has been taking lessons for about six months. He is now an orange stripe (halfway to his orange belt). While he didn't really want to take lessons, he has since come to like them for the most part.
My hubby has been taking lessons for about a year. He is now an orange belt. He really enjoys the lessons and practices quite a bit. I'm glad he has something that he can do together with the boys (our youngest takes lessons as well).
