Sometimes, the best defense is knives. Lots of knives.

Sais ain’t knives. They’re glorified rice thrashers and not even sharp.
Also, one of the kids has a boken.
Also not a knife.
okay. nobody move, someone might lose and ear.
Wow, they’ve all advanced to the green belt level. NOW GO PRACTICE!
“We don’t get mad…we get stabby!”
ZOMBIES FEAR US!
Is that Karl Rove?
Why does everyone have something sharp except the boy? Why didn’t he get something sharp to hold? That’s just wrong.
OH THE HORROR!!! We have TWO family pics like this – my husband wanted us to take martial arts as a family, and OM*G, those schools are SERIOUSLY into separating you from your money…..they have pictures EVERY year, if not every 6 mos…..and every family is strongly encouraged to attend – and then they make a HUGE poster of all the family pics….which hangs in the foyer. TORTURE…..I was absent from the last one, since I stopped attending….thank god….
They all have the same colored belt on… so if those are real they all started whatever martial art they’re going for at the same time. Can you imagine fighting your mom as a ten yr old boy? Or explaining to your friends that you have family karate time now?
Ten years from now they will find themselves selling ginsu knives on late night infomercials, wondering where it all went wrong!
Bottom-right-girl is smiling because she knows Dad’s credit card numbers and can’t stop buying from those late-night ads – “call NOW and receive a FULL SET of USELESS FAUX-ORIENTAL WEAPONS!”
My thinking is, I wonder what a serious photo looks like in their family? LOL
It’s not a bo staff, it’s a giant honing rod.
This is one sharp family. They’re willing to take a stab at anything…very cutting edge.
Will somebody please tell O.J. to call off the manhunt !!! I think we know who did it….Good thing he was looking everyday for the person or persons responsible !!!
KIDS, LETS GET STABBY!!
Ninjas versus compound bows?
Not sure if anyone’s posted this, but ….The family that slays together, stays together!
Looks like Billy brought a stick to a knife fight.
the little girl in front of the mom looks like the girl that played Jon Lovitz’s daughter in Rat Race …. “But dad! I’m Prarie Dogging!”
I love the way they don’t smile (except the little girl on the left who is the youngest and the less serious about that).
YOU DON’T WANT TO MESS WITH US
Finally, after all these years…O.J. can now rest at ease…knowing that he has found the Killers !!!
The family that flays together, stays together.
I also notice that mom looks like she’s aiming for daughter’s neck and older sister on our right is aiming for littlest (deceptively innocent-looking) sibling. You think you’re going to borrow my sweater, do ya punk?
Their last name should be Ginsu
Marney and family waiting at their door on Thanksgiving…..THEY will decide if that’s a REGULATION size casserole dish!!
“Yeah, there’s like a butt-load of gangs at this school. This one gang kept wanting me to join ’cause I’m pretty good with a bo staff.”
That’s ’cause I got skills. Bo staff skills, nunchuck skills…you gotta have skills.
Home invasion? I think NOT!
The little girl on the right just can’t pull off the whole scary ninja thing. She’s too cute!
She’s probably the most deadly—you never suspect the cute one!!
Poor kid with the bo staff, he doesn’t get a cool weapon.
I’m not sure what kind of martial arts look they’re going for but it’s not good.
” Have your credit card ready,if you ring in the next 5 minutes we’ll also throw in the steak knives,machete AND the disemboweller”
I bet they’re a real hit when they visit the sushi restaurant!
Okay, after looking at this, I’m starting to think my formative years weren’t half so odd after all.
I find a common theme on this site is awkward Dad’s forcing their childhood dreams upon their children who have no choice but to say no. As an example I give this picture and the startrek picture and so on. This site could be called awkward dads forcing their families to go along with it.
thats what i ALWAYS thought about when seeing photos like this, its like the african safari one, everyone looks miserable except for the grinning dad.
I would like to say “shame on you!” to those fathers, but then again when i think about having kids of my own one day- i think about us dressed like we’re from the late 1800′s england and we’re each holding our weapon of choice. Mine would be a scythe.
It’s like a family of teenage mutant ninja turtles!
LIttle Jimmy couldn’t be trusted with a sharp object, so they gave him a broom handle from the janitor’s closet.
