mon, 7/ 193

This week, Niall and Cory are at martial arts camp at the Enso Center in Redmond. They're learning about several types of martial arts, including Aikido, doing stretches, learning about moving their bodies deliberately in space, and practicing rolls, kicks, and even throws.

The instructor, Jason, and his "helpers" often demonstrate different moves for the kids, sometimes with fans or "weapons" (wood sticks or swords). The swords and so on, they emphasize, are only used to help them focus on the space around them rather than being used for self-defensive or to actually attack.
