Just a little proud mum thread
My eldest son was born 7 weeks prematurely and spent the first 4 weeks of his life in special care. He has had various health problems and operations to correct defects as a result of his early birth and only one medical condition remains which cannot be rectified but doesn't affect him.
We were told he would always be a slow developer both mentally and physically and whilst being very small for his age he has excelled at everything he does.
While in year 1 at school he was being bullied by younger children and lacked any confidence. We decided to enrol him in karate classes to build his self confidence and also to help him defend himself the bullies.
He has taken his red/black belt grading this week and will hopefully take his black belt this time next year and is already training to be an instructor. He has won numerous trophies and medals and the karate has done him the world of good - he is no longer shy and has a real confidence about him.
I have finally managed to get some clips of him uploaded and apologies for the rubbish camera work - not one of my talentshttp://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=M_GbIEqZq-chttp://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=6RlgtyxhOsc
( he is the little one on the left of the screen who almost kicks the camera out of my hand)
