  5. Essie says:

  9. William says:

    Older son has that look: “This is not my idea.”

  10. mardacara says:

    I bet they all joined to “support” teenage boy and now he rues the day he was born.

  11. Christine says:

    I bet two seconds before this was snapped, Dad did a quick take to the left to check out his pit. Could explain Mom’s expression.

  12. screwyou2 says:

    dad has the yellow belt, and thinks shes some type of actor with the shades.. haha epic!

  13. Elizabeth says:

    Dad’s still wearing High Karate and they love watching Hong Kong Fooey on Cartoon Network

  14. HeatherW says:

    Meet the new staff at Rex-Kwan-Do – Jimmy and Tammy Scroggs, and their sons Jimmy Jr and Wayne.

  15. Stickler4detail says:

    Sadly, being a former TaeKwonDo Purple belt, not one of them has their belts knotted correctly–supposed to be flat in front!

      Actually it depends on who teaches you and specifically the class. For example I’ve done Hapkido and self defense classes for a couple years and that’s how we were taught to tie them.

    • Shanarah says:

      I’ve been doing Karate (Shorin-Ryu) since 2004… Mandi’s right. they got there belts tied right.

  16. Wainscott says:

    With declining sales at the beet farm Dwight Schrute decided to teach self defense classes to make a little extra cash.

  17. Lala says:

    I can see the conversation they had while picking out their outfits for this picture…
    Dad: “Well, green is for beginners, and gold is for kings! RICH kings! So I will wear gold and y’all will wear green.”
    Kids: “Haha, okay Dad.”

    And seriously, the mom looks just like my friend’s mom. And she’s way scarier in real life. O_O

  18. McMama714 says:

    Is it just me or does the youngest kid have a finger where is second toe should be? Finger toes freak me out.

    • I Reckon... says:

      It’s called Morton’s Toe… His first metatarsal is shortened. The Statue of Liberty has the same toes, apparently anyway, as I have not seen her myself. But I do share her toes….. and even scarier…. I looked alot like the boy in the front in ’82-’83, probably about the same time this pic was taken too…. but I was a girl (then…. & now)….. Awkward!!!

  19. Patricia says:

    It hit me right away: dad is vogueing. Strike a pose!

  20. … in fact it was a little bit frightening!

  21. becky says:

    Dad needs to step it up. he’s behind in his belts!!!

  22. Michelle says:

    What is dad doing with that arm above his head? Raising his arm since since he’s SURE!

    • Grainne says:

      i believe he is blocking and punching at once; i too practiced taekwondo with my dad, who also trailed a little behind in the level of belt. oh the memories of being whooped regularly by 200 lb women in spearing gear are flooding back!!!

    • Gracey says:

      LOL x2
      raise your hand if you’re sure!

  23. JahMahn says:

    I think the caption is referring to the kid, who can do the splits.

  24. Lady Ice says:

    omg Dad is epic. he wins with that serious pose and sunglasses. yes!

  25. jenny says:

    This family has to be related to the Van Helsings. And I think Mom’s name is Marney – she looks pretty mean!

  26. Gigi says:

    Is it scary that I now think my mother had a secret other family in the eighties … and also is a green belt. Also, dad is two belts behind there, pick it up.

  28. sonya says:

    Hate to sound dumb, but I don’t get the comment, “Somebody here hasn’t been using it *just* for self-defense.” Is it because the teenage boy’s right eye looks a bit black?

  29. VibroCount says:

    Beware the clenched toe of fury!

  30. ANonnyMouse says:

    I know what’s going on here. Mom and kids take up a martial art and dad is disinterested – for a while. Once dad is on board it becomes the coolest thing and the family photo is his idea. He is supremely self-unaware so he thinks he is rocking it.
