Re: What to do in this case???
If only you could just say no when dealing with an ex :s
Have you suggested swimming lessons to him? Maybe when presented with an alternative he'll be more receptive.
Or saying we're writhing on his ball skills at home, but I'm concerned that the organised sport will make him get bored of it now. Next year he'll be able to enjoy and focus more...

I get what your saying. I'm an avid soccer player- DS...not so much. He wanted to do Tai Kwan Do. Now, I can't think of anything more boring! It looks totally boring to do and is totally boring to watch! But, its what DS wants to do.
I only have one rule. No rugby union until he can sign his own insurance forms. That's just because I'm a Mum and I think it's too rough- probably not a logical argument for some, but for me- yes.
I would talk to FOB and suggest that you both leave it up to your son to choose. Give him a list of maybe 3 things- your pick, FOB pick and a random. Than tell him he can pick one thing to do for the season out of those, but the one he picks he must complete for the term/season (whatever you pay for). Than let him choose.
I know you don't think there are as many benefits to a team sport as there are to a martial arts, but I beg to differ. Team sports teach kids the value of a team player, of working together to achieve a goal, I don't think there is as much socialisation in martial arts as there is in team sports. Than again, martial arts has its own set of advantages- I beleive it builds great confidence and self-esteem. In the end though- allow him to choose how he spends his spare time, there'll likely be a time where he will choose to do martial arts and a whole lot of other sports and activities.
Unfortunately I don't think it's fair to say that you can only do sports and activities that I want you to do.
