Wax On- Wax Off

Can you name the movie?

One of the greatest movies made in the 80’s. Or as my oldest son says, “The 19’s.” Yes, Monkey, this movie is from the 19’s.

The name of the movie is…

wait for it…

The Karate Kid.

And I’ve got 3 of them. Technically 2 for now, but number 3 doesn’t know that. Anyhow, they are getting quite good at this karate thing.

Well the little Dunbars are continuing to advance in karate. Bogie went from a white belt to a white-orange a few Saturdays ago.


We love these two sensei’s. They take the time to show the boys the right technique for each move, to encourage them, to joke with them, and overall they just plain invest in the boys each week. Sensei Toby, on the left, just graduated from law school and wants to be a DA. Sensei Brian wants to own his own dojo someday.



Monkey advanced from a purple-white, to a full purple belt. One thing I love about this dojo is that the kids really have to earn their belts. You don’t just get to show up for a month or two and then get handed a new belt, you have to show true knowledge and competency in all areas. And it takes a lot of hard work to advance.


This girl right here has been taking karate since she was 4 and will be testing for her black belt in February. She’s a great example for the boys as well as a fun playmate and quasi-babysitter for the Small Fry.

Great work, boys. I am so proud of you.
