I'm impressed is an understatement.

I don't like sports (or at least, not the kind of sport society seems to favour) and I have no kids. But it feels really rehearsed... they're not laughing or talking like a normal dad to his kid would, so it came across as a bit artificial, perhaps even commercial, at least to me. In all honesty, I found it dull and predictable.

 

Or perhaps I completely missed the message, in which case, well, perhaps this video is currently beyond my comprehension mellow.png

Of course those routines are practiced, that's the point. I think what's impressive is her display of speed and coordination. She is also very fluid in her weave and strikes.

Boxing is no good for your brain in the long run.

Only if you get hit ;)

That did not particularly impress me. Maybe it's just me or because I've been living with cats for so long, but I don't find it particularly noteworthy, especially if it's been practised, there's much more to coordination and agility than just executing predefined movements. In any case, just my opinion, really.

I have a boy about that age. Rehearsed or not, that's pretty darn impressive. I would have to practice that with my son every day until he was meaningfully older before he'd develop that kind of coordination and reflexes.

Yes, she really is impressive and I really appreciate it.

 

To be honest, though, she's about two years too old to absolutely blow my mind (she would if it wasn't so obviously rehearsed).

 

My boy is two years old now and this really impresses me:

I don't have any kids, but I do teach Aikido to kids. We have a kids class (7 - 13) and a young kids class (5-7).

 

I don't care if it's co-ordinated or not, that is damn impressive. Most of the 9 or 10 year olds I see would struggle to achieve that level of co-ordination, never mind the younger kids.

 

 

My only concern would be the kid being pushed to do something just because the parent wants them to. I also used to teach swimming and I saw plenty of kids dragged along to class because Mommy or Daddy want a cheap babysitter, or they want the kid to achieve the goal they never did.

 

OTOH, if she's enjoying that, then that is an epic parenting win IMHO.
