My name is Jeff and I'm 48. I have 2 kids ages 11 and 15. The kids have been studying for the better part of three years and have not been making much progress within their school due to their lack of outward agression. My 11 year old has entered a few tournaments and won his age category at a statewide tournament a year ago. They're getting frustrated watching kids they know they can beat get promoted ahead of them. I started taking classes at the dojo to get them to attend more often. I'm fairly fit (able to run 10 miles or bike 60) and end up sore after classes no matter how long I train. I know it's the wrong place for me. I'm thinking it's time for a change for them too.
Is this a fairly common occurrance? Is there any kind of an online rating system for schools in my area?
