Last night was purple…..purple karate belt night that is! Yay for my little boy who received his purple belt in his mixed martial arts class. He and the rest of the “Kid Tigers” were so super cool receiving their new belts and celebrating their achievements, and I was filled with love and pride for each and every one of those awesome kiddos.
I want to give a high five and big shout out to the karate school. Black Belt 4 Life in Tucson is such a special place, and for any locals, I highly recommend it. I’ve written about them before in my blogs, but today, I want to give a personal shameless plug for them. Mr. V, owner and master teacher, is a true mentor for all of his students, and his super kid-friendly personality makes the class what it is. My son loves going to karate class, and I know that even the parents really enjoy our time there chatting with each other. Mr. V’s Black Belt 4 Life is a lovely little martial arts oasis in the desert, and if you’re looking for a karate school for either adults or children, you should go check it out.

Now…..it is time to introduce the newest little purple-belted Kid Tiger. Here he is:
And here is he with his beloved teacher:
And with the rest of the adorable Kid Tigers:
Of course, my song of the day has to be a very purpley little ditty, and it is. “The Purple People Eater” never ceases to bring a smile to my face, and I have taught this song to children all over Tucson.
