    My DD does Ju Jitsu she is 8. She started in term 1. She has had one grading so is in the "advanced" class. I watched her last week as they had a new teacher and I was not sure who it was. I noticed in the beginners class that a child had started, he is the child that has been bullying her for since the end of last year. Would you say something to the teacher? Or just let it go until or if it ever becomes an issue?

    My son does Tae Kwando, DD will start next year when she is 3 as she's dying to go too.

    ETA: just saw your next post. I would leave it and see what happens, it may just be the thing that stops the bullying and if it doesn't you can jump on to it quickly.

    My younger DD wants to start as well. I said when she is in Grade 1 which is next year. I think everyone would be miserable if she started now as listening is not her strong point

    I disagree. My DS started karate when he was in prep so he was 5/6 at the time. It was for kids 4 and up. They encouraged kids with ADHD, behavioural problems or even if they were just a bit spirited. They claim it basically chills them out a bit.

    I think that a quite word to the teacher wouldn't hurt.

    Thank you Jakois!

    I will think about until next lesson.

    Harvest Moon....I just worry about her being in there the way she is when I have seen the teacher's reaction to the older spirited boys. I figure if I give her another 6 months or so it won't hurt and she watches her sister from time to time so she will know what to expect. Our other idea is to put her in a different sort of martial art all together that way there is no competition between them!
