Three thousand cheers! Every time I read here about S's time at the dojo, I wish I'd tried something like that when I was her age. My parents were great about not pushing me to do things I didn't think of myself but I wish I'd done martial arts. Or I guess getting into yoga earlier would have been great too. At least I have that now. But every time I pass the martial arts place near my apartment I think about taking one of their self-defense classes...

I wish I'd had the opportunity to do martial arts as a kid as well. They are about mental discipline and focus as much as the physical, a duality that is so, so helpful to work with and through at a young age. I'd start now, but my schedule is too packed. But I suspect that martial arts are even better for girls and women, who learn to deal with aggression in a calm, controlled manner.
