    I'm sure it'd get the kids fit, but then again any kind of exercise would do that.
    As far as bullyproofing go? Junior boxing sounds a lot better.

    Yeah, and with all due respect, your kids aren't learning karate. They want to learn karate then they go to a karate dojo and they do it right. TBH. it's probably cheaper too.

    You want your kids to be fit, but 'em a bicycle. Or indeed, take them to a karate dojo...

    "Picking up karate" needs a little qualification. Around here, that means developing skill to engage someone who is trying to hurt you, but it means different things to other people. I'm not sure if you're familiar with fighting arts, so I'll use an analogy- fighting/self defense is a fast paced endeavor where variables can change very quickly and you must adapt, like driving a car. Would you trust in your ability to drive a car based on watching DVDs, and then by pretending to use a steering wheel while making car noises? Probably not- you'd have to actually get in a car to learn. Another one they like around here is swimming- you wouldn't learn to swim by buying a DVD and practicing swimming strokes in your living room; you'd need a body of water. If your kid likes watching their karate DVD and swinging their arms and legs around, then that's great that they've got something they like and that gets them moving, but make sure that they know that they shouldn't think that they can take on the world because they know karate. If they really like it, you might want to get them into a real martial arts school some time- they might end up being really good!

    Food for thought.

    Just tell the kids to scrap/duke it out on their own, they'll be fine, even if they lose they'll be left alone. Also I've said this a bazilion times it's not your coach's job to teach your kids anything else than the sport/art they are supposed to, trust, self confidence, character and allllll that other crap IS YOUR FUCKING JOB AS A PARENT!

    I was a little shocked. Sure, he changed sides quickly, but I guess even a dog can realize it has more in common with the wolf than with the shephard.

    I give him the names of some BJJ schools in the area, and we go our separate ways.

    YouTube- Sensei Robert Tallack Wolverine Kata

    Here they say something about what he had won. Sounds like he has only competed in karate kata. How is kids doing katas supposed to be good as anti bully protection? That should be one of the top things that attracts bullys :D
    It is kind of like splashing the water when your in the shark tank
    And if you do kata like that even the other kata people will bully you.

    You sound like a nice guy, but I have to ask: when your kids are practicing their step punches and crane kicks on the playground and some bully comes and hands their butts to them, will you still like this?

    There are fantastic MA options for children, and this is not one of them. Kids can learn Judo, no prob. I remember a playground altercation when I was a kid between a bully and a kid who's parents were nice enough to give him Judo lessons. Pretty much the most one sided fight I've ever seen even to this day. Bully got ruined and Judo kid didn't even throw a punch, which, compared to krotty, will also help prevent your kids from the trouble they'll get into for striking.

    Just a thought...

    The only thing that should be learnt from DVD's is sexual positions and foreign languages. And I'm not too sure about foreign languages.

    You are the reason they should have a license to be a parent.

    Seems like a pretty smart way to make easy money, but why was he teaching kids how to do tricep extensions? Seems more like an aerobics video for children.

    Just don't let the kids watch him do his wolverine dance.
