Some years ago I started a tradition of doing 1,000 pushups on January 1st. Martial artists, being who they are, added in 1,000 squats, crunches, punches, kicks and what ever else they could think of.

Josiah David Kooyman was born 12/11/13 to Master Larry Kooyman (Goju-Shorei Karate Director) and his beautiful wife Sensei Dani Carroll-Kooyman. 21.5 inches and 9lbs 9ozs. He will be testing for Yellow Belt very soon and the 49ers have him on their watch list.
As one of his Grandfathers I am proud beyond description.
Congratulations to the new parents and their very healthy son!
