Karate Hero

Eli 5.7 has been taking classes at The Little Gym for several years. It's really helped his coordination, and he's had a great time.

"Little Gym has added a karate class," Gloria said after they returned from class yesterday.

"Really?" I asked.

"I think Eli might enjoy it," she said. "And karate teaches discipline and sportsmanship."

"Sweep the leg!" I said.

"What?" she asked.

"The worst example of sportsmanship in history," I said. "And it was in karate."

"Oh, good grief," she said. "That was a movie."

"Besides," I said. "Learning karate can be really boring."

"What do you mean?"

"Wax on, wax off," I said.

"You don't know anything about karate that wasn't in The Karate Kid, do you?"

"First learn stand, then learn fly," I said.
