Thanks all!

What's a good age to start with kids? Mine are 3 and 5. One would benefit from confidence and coordination, the other discipline and rule following (!)

Tough call. Depends on ..

1) The school. Are they used to dealing with little ones? Try to watch their beginner classes and see how the school handles the littlest members and think about your child in that situation.

2) The maturity of the child. We started our son when he was 5, but I have seen some four year olds. When you watched the school for point one, do you think your child could handle what you saw without breaking down in tears, throwing a tantrum, or just in general disrupt the class?

3) Are you willing to join the child on the floor for the class? The better schools let the parents participate for no additional (or at least greatly reduced) cost. For a little one to succeed the parent MUST reenforce the teachings at home. This is much easier when you are part of the class learning with your child.

Thanks for the advice, I will definitely go and see a class. We have a tai kwon do one locally, and aikido 30 mins away.

So much seems to depend on the teacher. I am really up for getting involved and we want to go as a family. I think it will probably be next fall then, when my girl will be 4. She is very bright and savvy. I might finally drop some weight by then too...

What a great thing for you to do together

Yes it heavily depends on the teacher, FAR FAR FAR more then the style. That being said, some general thoughts on styles:

TKD - This is a rear leg kick centric style. Originally designed for peasants to fight men on horse back while the poor peasant was stuck on the ground. Most of the flashy kicks you see in movies come from this style. This is often a more offensive oriented style.

Aikido - My instructor calls this lazy man's Karate because it takes very little strength. :D It is a flowing style where you redirect the targets strength to your own advantage. Originally created as a way for someone to defend themselves WITH OUT hurting their opponent.

From a self defense stand point Aikido is likely to be more useful in real life. For keeping an active child focused, TKD is more likely to succeed.

Oh no, I think I've got one of each! Is it karate you do then?

"Karate" is a general term. Both Akido and TKD can fall under that term. I go to a MMA (mix martial art) style that is called American Freestyle Karate that has some TKD and some Aikido in it (plus other styles).

Which of the two you listed that you go to will depend more on the instructor and how you feel he connects to your children then anything.

I'm feeling better :)

Yeah, despite my school being a part of the CU system, it has really weird holidays. We only get labor day, thanksgiving (wed-fri), the one holiday that i can't think of (21st of jan? around there) and spring break. They don't shut down the school unless its like -30 out and pipes are busting all over the place.

:lol:

I ran out of black ink while trying to print a 30 page pdf file for an essay of mine. Of course it runs out three pages from the end. Oh well, i needed to go for a walk anyway, so i'll probably head to the library in the morning (at 6 cents a page no less).

Is it me or did the forum get jumbled up? Not sure if i like it.

Hi Shadow-

Have you tried draft quality on your printer? Shaking the black cartridge about than trying again or change the font color to dark blue can work too -- of course a walk to the library is a good choice for other reasons at least you only need three pages.

Scott jumbled the forums a bit to be listed in order of most frequently visited.

Eh this printer is rather new and touchy about its ink. I fear if i take it out that it won't register. Thats fine, the walk will do me good :)

That makes sense. Still, i'm not used to it.

Happy Birthday, Jess!!

Off swashbuckling wif the pirate?

Went to the movies yesterday with some friends, turned off the ringer on my phone, and completely forgot that I'd turned it off.

Picked up my phone this evening and saw that I'd missed 10 calls from him. :ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r:

He had forgotten that it was my birthday, so I listened to a progressively more worried series of messages... "...are you....ok?" "are...you mad at me...?" "what did I do?" "Is something wrong? Please call and tell me you're ok".. "IT"S YOUR BIRTHDAY! " Followed by the happy birthday song. I called and told him about turning off the ringer, and he fessed up about not realizing it was my birthday until he logged on to fb.

It was very funny, and sweet. :wub: :wub: :wub:

Wow, you are way cooler than I would be!! That's at least flowers, maybe jewelry in my book. Or a book of course.

Very sweet though :)

Hope you had a lovely birthday. Good film?

I told my wife on our first date that I would forget her birthday, and special dates all the time. Told her if that was going to be a problem we needed to end our dating relationship before we get started. :D We have been married fro 16 years now, so you can see how that went. :D

I grew up desensitized to the whole "special dates" kind of thing. I was one of five kids and our birthdays are all during the summer. When Mom was filling out forms for school or the doctor or something, she always had to ask me when my birthday was. If you grow up with your Mom not knowing when your birthday was, you don't really expect anybody else to either.

I'm also not a 'special events' person. I didn't realize it was my birthday until the day before. TG for facebook. :D

    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
    • Garden of Life brand Dr. Formulated Organic Fiber. It's certified gluten free. Also free of psyllium husk, dairy and soy. Also found that just simply increasing fiber intake works wonders. Perhaps try skipping a protein for at least one meal and fill up on veggies and fruits.
