Katelynn originally started with Jiu Jitsu back in November 2013. She had a lot of fun, doing Martial Arts. In January 2015, Sara was old enough to join her older sister. Unfortunately six months later, we had to take a long break from Jiu Jitsu.
Now, Sara is back! Today, she had her first class, after two years. The neighbor’s boys are in class with her. And since it is Summer Break, she was the only girl in class, today. She’s definitely used to it.
Sara takes a deep breath after the warm-up.
Sara plays “Try to get my sock”. This game is actually a very important practice in Martial Arts. Kids learn strategically to get the opponents sock, while trying to protect their own sock. When they lose their sock, they are out for that round.
Lughnasadh/Lammas is the time to celebrate the first harvest of the year, and recognize that the hot summer days will soon come to an end. At Lammas, (loaf-mass), freshly baked loaves of bread are placed on the altar.
