April 19 - Sweet Ninja Moves

HYPOTHESIS: By adding in an element of fantastical training, children will more readily participate in physical fitness exercises.

PROCEDURE: This weekend, at the auction to benefit the kids' school, they handed out these light-up styrofoam wands so that parents could bid on stuff in the darkness. I stealthily absconded with a few of them and gave them to the kids, with the intention of using them as sticks to duck under and jump over for Sweet Ninja Moves. And it LOOKED AWESOME.

We also did some more of the "Rocks / Arrows / Noodles / Chambers" stuff we did last time, but those pictures didn't come out nearly as cool as the three above.

RESULTS: Possibly some minor improvements from last month, but nothing major. But I really liked seeing their focus while doing the "Rocks / Arrows / Noodles / Chambers" stuff, those karate lessons are paying off.
