Somebody here hasn’t been using it just for self-defense.

Makes you wonder where they are now?
I like Karate and you like Karate baby. Let’s get together and have Karate Kids!
This is odd……………………………….. hahahahahaha! whoa this is awkward i never thought someone would do kung fu with a kid
They got me shaking at the knees….ohhhhh, Im so scared!!! Especially mom, she means business. And what’s up with the toe? I love it!!!
Looks like the dad is about to do some shockingly mean disco dance moves LoL, love it!
Isn’t this the dude from the ‘guns-n-parrots’ photo?
Haha! The little kid doing a split,looks like he’s in pain.
the dad is the funniest
Older son has that look: “This is not my idea.”
I bet they all joined to “support” teenage boy and now he rues the day he was born.
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.
dad has the yellow belt, and thinks shes some type of actor with the shades.. haha epic!
Dad’s still wearing High Karate and they love watching Hong Kong Fooey on Cartoon Network
Ha! Thank goodness I wasn’t in mid swallow of my drink!!!
Meet the new staff at Rex-Kwan-Do – Jimmy and Tammy Scroggs, and their sons Jimmy Jr and Wayne.
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.
I’ve been doing Karate (Shorin-Ryu) since 2004… Mandi’s right. they got there belts tied right.
With declining sales at the beet farm Dwight Schrute decided to teach self defense classes to make a little extra cash.
And he only serves beets for classroom snacks.
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
Is it just me or does the youngest kid have a finger where is second toe should be? Finger toes freak me out.
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!!!
It hit me right away: dad is vogueing. Strike a pose!
… in fact it was a little bit frightening!
those cats were fast as lightning
with expert timing
Dad needs to step it up. he’s behind in his belts!!!
Ha ha! Yep!
What is dad doing with that arm above his head? Raising his arm since since he’s SURE!
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!!!
raise your hand if you’re sure!
I think the caption is referring to the kid, who can do the splits.
He can do the splits no problem.
omg Dad is epic. he wins with that serious pose and sunglasses. yes!
Hey…that cat is fast as lightning.
I bet the dad has more than one “wolf howling at the moon” shirt in his wardrobe.
I wish I could remember the movie where Chris Farley had the ‘stache and glasses just like that. I swear, if dad was sporting about 100 pounds more, he’d be a dead ringer. No pun intended.
I think the movie was “Airheads”?
This family has to be related to the Van Helsings. And I think Mom’s name is Marney – she looks pretty mean!
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.
Oh snap! I was going to say that.
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?
I have to agree. I didn’t make a big deal out of it earlier because I was so happy there had not been a slew of “photoshop” suggestions.
I think it’s because the youngest is squaring up for a fight with his fists!
I assumed it had something to do with the way dad was holding his fist, but perhaps my mind just goes *there* more than it should
I believe it’s because the mother and son’s are black belts and the father is a yellow (much lower in skill).
My monitor shows green belts and this is another caption that kinda falls flat.
Oh well, no biggie.
(Not awkward w/ me, for the record)
I thought the comment “using it for something other than self-defense” was meant to describe that the something other is this “cool” photo sitting
I think the caption is referencing the fact that they are using what they learned to pose for awesome photos like this.
Beware the clenched toe of fury!
HA! The first thing I noticed was that kid’s toe!! Creepy…
CRACK ME UP KUNG TOE FIGHTIN MAKES ME QUIVVER!!!
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.
Dad is a yellow belt – that’s just one grade up from a beginner!
I love your comment on the background behind the picture,,, to funny!
Dad may only be a yellow belt in karate but he is a black belt in total awesomeness! that is for damn sure!
