Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present."

Building self esteem through competition!

This one cracks me up! They had to do a Kata (not sure if that is spelled right?) while in a duck-walk position, it was quite comical!!

Ok, so since I did not know if I spelled "Kata" correctly, to set a good example, I looked it up...here is what I found:

Kata (型 or 形, literally: "form"?) is a Japanese word describing detailed choreographed patterns of movements practiced either solo or in pairs. Kata are used in many traditional Japanese arts such as theater forms like kabuki and schools of tea ceremony (chadō), but are most commonly known for the presence in the martial arts. Kata are used by most traditional Japanese and Okinawan martial arts, such as aikidō, iaidō, jōdō, jūdō, jūjutsu, kendō and karatedō. Other arts such as t'ai chi ch'uan and taekwondo feature the same kind of training, but use the respective Chinese and Korean words instead.

Looks fun but a little complicated. I'm sure it is good exercise though.

Competition is a great way to build your self-esteem. It's measurable, you are among other people so you learn how to behave,you can win and it's fun.
