J is taking the kids to a special event at a dojo nearby where a neighbor child takes karate lessons. Judah has recently watched The Karate Kid with Daddy and Sofi and is very excited, with big plans about all the fighting he's going to do. I just overheard this exchange between Judah and J and laughed so hard I nearly snorted my Cheerioes out my nose...
No, Judah, you can't take your sword to karate class. they have their own swords at karate.
Can I... can I... can I...? (excitement renders him nearly speechless)
No, son, they're not going to let you use the sword.
Because you have to be very very good at karate before they let you use the swords.

No, silly boy, you've never even had a karate class before.
