My daughter is getting to the preteen age, and boys are starting to like her. She's still not exactly sure how she feels about that, but that'll come along. She likes the romantic ideas about being special to someone.

Anyway, she's a green belt in Isshin Ryu Karate. Shes had some striking training at my gym, and very little grappling. She knows the various reasons it's important to be able to protect yourself, as well as be confident. We've went over several of them. I wish she would have taken to grappling more, but she's just not into that particular bit.

After getting her green belt, the karate school came under new Sensai-ism (made that up). She didn't like the new guy, so after trying to adjust eventually dropped out. She's just been doing sports since then, and no martial arts.

So I told her:

"You're wanting to hang out with friends alone more often. The boys have been looking at you recently, and you're getting older." (she makes the face here). "When the time does come where you are thinking about boys.. your mom and I have talked and come to a decision. If you want to have a boyfriend, the only thing we require is that you take kickboxing. You don't have to grapple, but you must take kickboxing"

She agreed, and not much else was said. She just asked me if I could start teaching her kickboxing again.
