    My son just won two martial art contest. He is student of (Savate)which is a method of the French kick boxing.He beat the heavy weight champion of Northern California, and won a trophy by coming in first in the heavy weight division.

    He is 19 and just been studing for over a year. He is a high brown belt but his Sensa lets him fight in the black belt division.

    He accomplish this with in two years of our leaving the WTBTS.
    There is life after the org.

    I just needed to brag.

    Wow! That is great for your son. My son just turned 15 and our family left the borg less than a year ago. He has always been athletic and that was always something the JW hated, you couldnt even run track in school, but you could play with an easy bake oven. Some boys just dont get what they need being a JW, they need an outlet. My son just signed up to learn Tae Kwon Do, and he is loving it! He just got his gee and we are looking forward to the advancements he will make. It has done wonders for his self esteem and he is making new friends.
    The JW always acted like if you do martial arts you might as well be worshipping Satan, but so far there has been no religious or spiritist content at all. The instructor said he could be a black belt in about 2 yrs if he really applies himself. He goes 3 times a week right now, and I too, am so proud of my son. I think I feel so strongly about helping him find something tomake him happy, because i feel guilty about bring him up as a witness. I am trying so hard to make amends for it now and encouraging him to use his own mind and look at all the possibilites out there for him.

    Congrats to your son, however considering how near the end we are (any day now), wouldn’t his time be better-spent selling worthless magazines and books door-to-door? Then again maybe not! He and you are so much better off having a real life then living in a dream world, don’t ya think?

    I am very happy for you both.

    thank you both for the nice words...

    All my children were very atheletic but due to the org. they never were allowed to strut their stuff... I too feel bad about their wasted lives.

    The martial arts just teach respect for the sinsa, the dojo and the opponate.

    good luck with your child's art.

    I know how you feel Rekless. I too have children and I am so proud of them I could just burst. But none of them have won trophies. Hmmmm, think I'll show them your post. Maybe one day they'll bring one home too. Congratulations on your family.

    CONGRATULATIONS TO YOUR SON. I know what you mean, I felt guilty for a long time, when I realized what my kids did not have the opportunity to do in their lives.
