And then this year they changed a few things at the studio. Now he gets to learn how to use a Bostaf. He went to a special class to learn about Bostaf safety. I know they're trying to teach the kids to not whack each other with them, but it's a nine-year-old boy. The next time Middle Child bugs him, I'm sure he'll whack him with his Bostaf. Because he got to pick out and I got to buy him his very own Bostaf. He was ecstatic. He brought it home the other day. He showed me some awesome moves with it and then I noticed a white label on the end. I went to peel it off, assuming it was the UPC code. But it wasn't. It was something much better.
It was a warning. All this time Karate instructors have been touting the benefits of Karate for children; it teaches discipline, attention, and self defense. But in all reality everyone else thinks that Karate is a High Risk Activity. Apparently Paralysis and Death can occur while using this product! I didn't know I bought him a magic wand? Hopefully he isn't struck dead the next time he picks it up for class.
