Proud Aunty

Well I'm feeling pretty proud of my 16 year old nephew at the moment. Benjamin is the second son of my eldest sister. He is also the middle child. We've all heard about the middle child syndrome. Well Benjamin doesn't suffer from that because he's found something that he excels in. Something he has been doing for over 10 years and that is Karate.

With his karate journey he has made two trips to Japan and consistently over the last few years has made the West Australian team for the National competitions.

At the moment he has been away for nearly two weeks and has competed in two major Australian championships, each run by different national organisations.

His current tally is 3 1st places, two as individual events and one as a team event. Two second places and one third place. It's just fabulous how well he is doing this trip.

So he may be the middle child but he is certainly not going to grumble about that. Go B!!!
