Jake's learning new skills

We enrolled Jake in a Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan martial arts class. He's been to 3 classes so far and seems to be enjoying it.
Last week, just happened to be their shim sa (testing) and Jake knew enough to get an orange stripe on his belt.

He also broke a plastic board with his foot. It is a board that breaks if you kick it right, and they can put it back together for the next kid, but Jake did kick it right and broke it. It took him a couple of tries, and when he broke it he seemed surprised but then he smiled big.

Here he is showing off his new stripe.

And here he is recreating his powerful kick.

Look out Chuck Norris!

Adorable! We are waiting for the day Ty can follow directions well enough to participate in organized activities. That is great that Jake can do this!

Jolene the class is for 4-6 years old, so they are pretty lenient about directions, but Jake is trying hard!
