No, sorry I don't remember my first class; that was 56 years ago. I'm sure I was scared senseless. I'm sure Soke and Dai-Soke scared the tar out of me; I was once extremely shy. I know I almost quit but mom wouldn't allow that because money spent is money earned.

Boy, the very first one? No. I do remember classes around that time, though. I must have been 7 or 8 being toted to class with my dad. I remember doing line drills of stances and blocking and striking, that kind of thing. I have vague memories of my dad (red belt) and some of the black belts doing a demo breaking boards.
