Day Four: Karate
Iti! Ni! San!!! To wrap up week two, the children were taught karate and how to incorporate the sport with Japanese. The Sho-Rei-Shobu-Kan Karate Club taught the students Okinawan Goju Karate. The sport of karate is all about defending oneself. The children learned basic karate moves and learned what to do in dangerous situations from bullying on the playground to encounters with strangers. The week was fun and physically educational. In week three, the children will learn Italian and have special presentations by the Swing Society.
