One Year On

Writing a weblog provides a handy timeline, so I was aware that yesterday's Muay Thai kids class was the anniversary of my little fella's first.

When I compare his (barely sub swagger) confidence and competence last night with the shyness of the wallflower that he was in his first lesson, I'm sure that it has done him the world of good.

I find it very difficult to understand intellectually why training for something brutal can be character building, but after watching his progress and that of his cohort week on week I absolutely believe it. There seem to be life lessons in the benefits of devoting yourself to a discipline that sometimes hurts.
