I know one of the concerns with a lot of homeschool families that I run into is that a lot of the ‘marshal arts” programs also promote their eastern religion/philosophy. I try to explain that you do not do that — I have never come across anything in your program that would counter our own strong belief in Jesus Christ and the teachings of Christianity overall. Thank you for devoting your time and energy to my son. Our family went through a great deal over the last few years. It was hard keeping us all afloat with illness and job loss – our son had Aikido to focus on and it was a place he could release his energy in a proper way.
