Don't overthink the decision. If your kid has a desire to train, sign him up. The mental and physical skills will last a lifetime and benefit him beyond the dojo. Put your time in doing the homework to research the right style and Sensei. IMO, the more pure Japanese karate styles such as Shotokan ar...

Earliest memory of us together as at the Fair Grounds, think I was about 3. We shared many afternoons at the track until he passed when I was in my 30's.
From a lower middle class income, he gave me the opportunity to grow or outgrow his place in life. As a result, I could never really go to him ...

The burden falls to the individual or face a "penalty". A tax by any other name, is still a tax. And if if everyone thinks the first year penalty is a mere $95, I sugggest they look mor carefully. Gonna be a lot of surprises at tax time next year.

I prefer the memories of youth. Don't want to see these elderly people where children should be, fat where there was muscle or wrinkles that replaced the dimples. I prefer the memories versus the world of reality. To see them now would take away my little game of make believe, where I can visit and ...

Appreciate both sides of the issue, but each kid and family is a little different. I have no problem with holding a kid back if it is done early, like K or 1st.
This happened to us by accident. At the end of my son's K year they "recommended" he repeat for maturity reasons. Truth is they needed ...
