Will and I are not the kind of parents to force our son to do an activity he despises. Our general rule is: try it twice and if you don't like it - you don't have to continue participating in it (this does not apply to academics or chores ;-)
A friend mentioned to me that he might enjoy karate. It's individual. The pace is slower - and he won't have anyone chasing him.
Last night we took him to his first karate class and he had a BLAST! He was smiling the whole time and giving me the thumbs up and doing all the moves like a miniature Karate Kid. I will, however, wait another week before buying him all the gear - just in case.
I was not the team sport kid, while Will was. I'm happy to say Seth takes after me in this regard.
Here's some pics from his time and our celebratory dinner at Gosh Ethiopian afterwards. After all, who doesn't like eating their plate?
