I’m watching the boys in Kenpo class with Dad, and the differences are evident.

They’re both thrilled with what they’re learning, of course. It’s a good class. And the time with Dad is simply invaluable. They’ll remember these classes for the rest of their lives.

While there’s a slight difference that comes of their ages, the really big difference shows in the face. Eric’s face is amused, interested, placid, and pained by turns. Ben’s face is only interested, amused, or vicious. While Eric’s eyes flick to Dad on every technique, Ben’s stay firmly on his opponent (Eric). Ben isn’t mean in class, but he MEANS this stuff. Eric sees the technique; Ben sees the target.
