Almost a year after he started, Rylan earned his orange belt in karate on Friday night. He used to struggle with jumping jacks and now he is a jumping jack leader sometimes. He also speaks loudly and confidently when he is chosen to be seargent-at-arms for the prayer at the beginning of class. I am so proud of Rylan's hard work and the character traits he is developing. Big thumbs up, buddy. Way to go!
The students gave us a demonstration of their skills first.
