I don't believe I told you, but Darling Man tested for and got his green belt in KenPo. He's just a green stripe and three degrees of brown away from being a black belt. I don't know if he'll go that far - KenPo is rough on the body and he's already dealt with a fair number of bruises, bloody noses and other injuries.
ZBoy, on the other hand, announced yesterday that he thought he was ready to go back and do KenPo again. He stopped at the beginning of summer. I'd sensed a waning of interest and effort and told him that I wasn't willing to pay that much money for him to go goof around in class and pissing off the instructors (no, you really don't want to do that!). So he stopped going.
It was just as well. He had camp for about half the summer and would have missed a lot of classes anyway. But I think he actually misses the classes, misses the exercise, and misses the discipline. He's started doing jumping jacks and crunches on his own and tonight he was going over the moves he'd already learned with Darling Man to refresh himself.
I think he might be serious!
