Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00320
Andrew has had several karate birthday parties. This was his third but his first at the America’s Best Defense in North Attleboro. He had his 5th, 6th and 8th birthday’s at karate studios and they are always a good time. We were thinking of what to do for Andrew’s birthday and I got a message that our ABD was doing free parties in November. So, I grabbed the last spot and we got it set up.
We invited all the kids in his class as well as the cousins. We had 17 kids at the party and they had so much fun. They started out with a dodge game where the black belts tossed pads at the kids and they ran around and around. Then they got to settle down and then do some learning of karate moves. I even got to help out and swing a foam sword at the kids so they could do some blocking.
then the kids had pizza and then had a big surprise. The big surprise was an obstacle course over in the Krav Maga dojo. The nice thing about ABD was that they have two dojos and the obstacle course was a complete surprise. The kids totally loved it.
Then the kids went back to the table for the cake cutting. The great thing about the cake cutting is that the cake is cut with a sword.
Andrew was all smiles as he cut his cake. I recorded it happening so didn’t get the best photo. I did get that good one of Eva doing the obstacle course. She absolutely loved doing kicks and more. Andrew loved having all his friends around and it was a good day.
