Aidan walked up to me after school yesterday and said, "so there was a fight at recess today." Certainly not the first words I want to hear from my 5th grader about how his day went! After piecing the story together, it appears two of his classmates began punching and kicking another child and Aidan broke up the fight. Another child jumped into the fracas and Aidan was able to hold him back until teachers were able to intervene. Three months ago, I am not sure Aidan would have done this. He is more introverted than outgoing. The confidence he has picked up since beginning jiujitsu is serving him, and obviously his classmate, very well.
