A Karate Kid
I have to start this post by saying that the title "Young Karate Master" is a bit of a misnomer. It is probably just a friendly, sweet, way of saying "Wow this kid is really great". To anyone familiar with grading in traditional martial arts the idea of a ten year old master would be ludicrous. On the other hand a ten year old black belt is possible. The majority of my time spent teaching over the last year has been focused on adults. It has been refreshing and invigorating to work with kids again. I found this video on YouTube. It was a reminder to me. It reminded that children are capable of remarkable things. The video also represents the hard work of a student and a very good teachers.
