    Default When my Son was 2

    ...I began teaching him Ju Jitsu...



    ...when he became 4 I added Kenpo....



    ...Today at age 6 I thought I could still take him. So I tackled him to the ground from behind and started raining punches. This nut rolls to guard and blocks punches with his feet....I thought it was luck he was blocking...he proved me VERY wrong so we took some pics of the final result.





    Hawkins IV by armbar. The surprising part is 1) I didn't give him the arm he got it himself 2) I didn't tell him what to do or how to do it so all the "details" the grapplers see he did on his own and 2) we haven't worked Ju Jitsu or Kenpo in a long time together as he seemed to lose interest and I didn't want to force him. I'm beyond happy right now, I guess it's time to start teachig him again?

    Just felt like sharing, this is a good time for me.

    That is excellent news bud. He is going to be very sharp if he is that good now. I am proud for the both of you.

    That's too cute!...maybe CUTE is not the right word
    I wish my girls still had an interest. They got their black belts in TKD and never went back.
    I wish I could have started that young! But I'm having fun now!

    In about 16 years we should arrange a marriage...

    her jujutsu is still primitive, but she is a real Tiger with the Kempo. She's a natural : I see this in her all the time 'When the opponent expands, I contract. When he contracts, I expand. And when the opportunity presents itself, I do not hit. It hits all by itself.'
