Reporting back about the karate
I wanted to thank everyone who answered my earlier post about taking karate. I talked extensively with the sensei, and made him understand our financial limitations. They could see they really wanted to do this, so school is giving us a $1000.00 scholarship, and we think we can swing it now, signing a contract for a year's commitment (I didn't feel comfortable agreeing to a commitment longer than that). The girls are going to start sparring, and I have my gi and I'm taking my first lesson today. They have used sparring equipment that the girls can use for free. Hurray!
