The great Mommy Blogger Love Fest is going on all over the place. It started here. I was flattered to be listed here. I wasn't sure if I was going to participate or not, because
I was in a bad mood so many are participating that I just didn't know if I could write an original post. I'm a little late getting in on this game to begin with. But, then I thought about all these cool karate mama's out there who have been stopping by this site, and I thought "Now there's an idea!"
My first Karate Mama is Junebee. She was my faithful and loyal commenter over at my syndicated blog site that my hometown newspaper publishes. My visitor stats over there are really great, but I rarely get a comment (let alone a nice one). So, Junebee hooked me up with praise on a regular basis, before she decided to come over to this site where I post more. She is a black belt in hapkido, and studies Tae Kwon Do as well.
Wayward Goddess always stops by and comments (and makes me feel like my work outs are completely inadequate!) She's got a cool new site with a graphic on it that just makes you want to get up and dance. She is outranked by her son, or should I say sensei son. I doubt that will be for long though.
Lost Cheerio found my site recently. She is a green belt in Tang Soo Do. She's witty and seems like she'd be a lot of fun to get to know. Her American Idol commentary alone is worth a visit.
Crouching Mother, Hidden Diva is a purple belt in shaolin kenpo and has an upcoming test for a blue belt. It should be interesting to see how it goes for her.
And honestly, I know it's supposed to be all about the ladies, but I would be seriously remiss if I didn't mention the karate papa's. . .
"Frogman" of "Taming the Horse Stance" takes karate with his son and works diligently on the things in karate that he likes the least. He goes to tournaments and competes along side his son, which is just way cool.
John of "Martial Views" is the Yoda of karate. . . at least that's what I tell him. He is a 2nd dan black belt in Isshinryu Karate. If you want to learn a whole lot about martial arts in a short amount of time, his site is the place to go. His posts are brain food for anyone interested in the martial arts; and he's got three sons too.
Curtis has three kids and is at the beginning of his karate journey. He is very dedicated and is lucky enough to be training with some of his very best friends (instead of with elementary school kids like I do.)
If you are a mama or a papa and take karate, let me know. I'd love to check out your site and I'm sure others would as well.
