Famous quotes containing the word karate:
“Since mothers are more likely to take children to their activitiesthe playground, ballet or karate class, birthday partiesthey get a chance to see other children in action.... Fathers usually dont spend as much time with other peoples kids; because of this, they have a narrower view of what constitutes normal behavior, and therefore what should or shouldnt require parental discipline.”
—Ron Taffel (20th century)
