And this months fighter of the month goes to….
Ever trained with someone twice your size?
What if everyone in the class is twice your size?
This is what Kharem, the smallest member of our kids judo class faces every day. He is so small that the other kids who can be 3 or 4 times bigger than him don’t see him when they are running around. It always ends with Kharem getting hurt.
The other day after getting hurt for the second time his mother gave him a face saving way out by telling him that if the others kept hurting him he could go home if he wanted to if his leg was sore.
Without hesitation Kharem jumped up, “I’m here before them, I’m not leaving!” and jumped back on the mat to get stuck in again.
This kids got the Wild Geese attitude and he doesn’t even know it yet.
