Kate has been going to Judo with Dave and the boys for years....

{Kate has always been very interested in Judo.  I even blogged about it here. This photo is at the boys first promotion in May, 2008}

So I asked Kate if she finally wanted to try it yesterday. And she was SO excited!  Our Sensei has wanted Kate to start but it is a 2 hour class and we were not sure she had the attention span at just 5 years old.

I have no clue what this pose is but I don't think it has anything to do with Judo:)

But by all accounts Kate did really well.   And she said she loved it.  She told us she wants to do it all the time (add that to ballet and violin). Dave snapped a few terrible shots with his phone....

Here she is taking down two big boys with moves she has learned from watching her brothers.  That little pig tailed blur is her:) I am hoping Judo will help teach her more confidence, discipline, attention and self defense as it has the boys.
