Monday was the first class of “Systema for Kids” and was a huge success. Carlos did an outstanding job, receiving a well-earned, enthusiastic round of applause from the parents in attendance. Blending simply principles with movement and a ton of fun, the kids seemed to have a blast.
Have you ever seen the movie “Miracle?” It was about the 1980 Gold Medal Hockey team. In one particular scene, coach Herb Brooks walks into the locker room before the game with Russia and breaks the silence by looking around at his players and saying in a most passionate voice, “You were born to be hockey players. Each and every one of you.”
After watching Carlos teach this class, it reminded me of this scene and though not original, but accurate nonetheless, let me say. . . You were born to teach kids!
