Bilal participated in his first mini karate tournament yesterday. It was basically just the kids who train at the elementary school, but for Bilal it was a big deal because he's never participated in a tournament. The students were divided into small groups of three or four, and they did their kata and sparred against them. The event was in the lunchroom, where the class is usually held, twice a week.Getting ready to spar:
Everyone got a medal (or two). Bilal got second place and kata and third in kum... read more »

POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:1] If someone is following behind youon a street or in a garage orwith you in an elevator or stairwell, lookthem in the face and askthem a question, like what time is it, ormake general small talk:can't believe it is so cold out here,we're in for a bad winter. Nowthat you've seen their faces and couldidentify them in a line- up,you lose appeal as a target.2] If someone is coming toward you,hold out your hands in front ofyou and yell Stop... read more »

Bilal tested for his next karate belt today. Tested, and got promoted! Now he has an orange/black belt to replace his solid orange one. He continues to move up the ranks with each test.

After five holes they have a choice to either pick a small toy or piece of candy from the teacher's treasure chest, or they may bring home a fuzzy class pet for two days. Bilal chose to bring home Buster, the class puppy.
They posed for some pics and just hung out together. Bilal found Buster's favorite spot to be scratched behind the ears. At bed time he r... read more »
