Although the big fight may not have been John- Browne's fault, all the fighters have to participate in a special martial arts presentation at school. Jack and his pals think of karate chops to cement blocks. The beauty of akido surprises them and the principles of humility, endurance, responsibility and compassion become part of their adoloescent world. Their punishment enables the boys to develop fight-avoiding scripts. As school life becomes more settled, Jack learns that troubles threaten to change the family.
