      I totally agree with Jennifer. Karate has done wonders for my two

      boys. They are husky kids, and were intimidated by other kids in

      school who are regarded as the “popular” ones. With the help of

      karate, and of course, Mom and Dad’s constant reassurance that they

      are going to be healthier soon, they have blossomed and made friends.

      They are not so intimidated any longer. Karate is not just a form of

      exercise for us, it has helped instill the right values in our

      children, from an outsider’s view. The instructers like to “put the

      blame” on themselves for having to learn to be responsible children.

      they work very close along side of the parents and only want what is

      best. I would venture to say that in my experience, their karate

      teachers have been more concerned with my kids than their

      teachers/counselors at school. I hope that your situation improves.
