I went to a Tallack Karate Demonstration on Saturday morning.
The children ranged in age from 8 to adult. The range of their committment ran from 3 years to 13 years. They were dedicated to becoming more proficient and displaying what they had learned. They number 12 in all. They displayed athletic skills most of us would we pleased to own. This same group had performed in the K Rock Centre during intermission at the Frontenacs Hockey games showing synchronized movements and levels of concentrations most adults would be boasting about. They have Andrew Babcock and his team of instructors working with Ken Tallack and Melissa -now the owner of Tallacks for this expertise. Most of this group spend 4- 5 hours a week enhancing their skills outside of completing their school work, home activities and other school involvements. It is an awesome dedication to learning a skill.
