Peter R-M has a gift. I saw him teach a class this evening with 9 elementary school boys, and he held their attention and respect throughout the hour in such a lovely way. He was charismatic and fun, but all with an undertone of discipline. His instruction was clear, and the mix of basics, challenges, drills and games felt thoughtful and intentional. If a child was momentarily disruptive, Mr. R-M provided an immediate but respectful correction. When I asked my very active 7 year old how he felt after class, he said “Calm. You said we can go back Saturday. How many days away is that?” Enough said.
