Capricious Karate Kid

Like Back to the Future this is a flashback, but since it was a big deal for Fletch and I’m always concerned with equal coverage, I decided to share Fletch’s yellow belt test footage.  He’s a bit hot and cold on the whole karate thing.  Before the holidays, we couldn’t pass a studio without a plea for lessons.  Skip forward to Christmas Eve when he opened his new uniform and proclaimed “I can’t do Karate, I’ll get hurt!”.  After nearly a month of nevers, I got him to class and you would have thought he had been there his entire life.  Two months of fun and a new belt later, now he doesn’t want to give up coloring at school to get to class.  I guess when you’re five it all depends on which way the wind blows.
