I want to take the opportunity to say how impressive summer camp was yet again this year. T really enjoyed it and I believe he benefited from it immensely.
I was particularly impressed with your efforts to help develop skills they will use in the wider world outside of karate, namely the confidence training.
When T first started attending your class some years ago, I never expected him to be coached on the art of conversation and that it would be incorporated into his karate training.
Tips such as expressing an interest in what other people have to say or talking about what might interest other people and not just themselves, and how it might help re-enforce current friendships and help build new ones was very inspiring.
All the children did exceedingly well in the climbing activity and it was evident they were having a great deal of fun but also pushing through comfort zones and developing confidence in the process.
You are doing a fantastic job and I will happily recommend your classes and the karate camps to other parents.
