    Sounds like more of a backpage ad.
    Let's not forget there are still species of tropical penguins living in the Galapagos.

    So what was the age range of the children that went there? How would they know if a child's grade's dropped, did they require the children to bring in report cards?

    Really? I started Judo when I was 10, did it for six months. Stopped and then went back years later.

    That George Dillman video was some funny stuff,starting with the claim that he taught Bruce Lee to the chi explanation finale.

    The 'necro thread' stigma varies from place to place. I encourage any people with children to take a look at, "Gracie Bully-Proof."

    It is a highly effective system that seems consistent with use-of-force values many of us have here.

    If not for the "necro thread,' I may have missed the opportunity to share the below stellar resource.

    I encourage anyone to take a look, and share their opinion. In my opinion, it's the best thing going in teaching self-defense concepts to kids.

    I'm not suggesting there are not others out there like this, but the World Tang Soo Do Association is the best I've come across. Not just martial arts, teaches kids respect for parents and teachers, hard work, being a good citizen. Every black belt has to write a paper before their BB test (even the kids), and all kids are expected to be doing some sort of community service. It's a whole person, traditional approach, and it's great for families (both my kids and I are black belts). See if there is one near you on this list and check them out if there is.

    Not that this matters when finding a school for your kids, but Grand Master Shin was Chuck Norris' first instructor, Norris got his 1st degree black belt under him in Korea when he was in the Air Force. Just an interesting tidbit, I guess.
