Extra Chapter 3 Shen Country Asher Family – Nonna’s Improvement
The day after Nonna participated in training.
Mr. Kan entered the cafeteria where the Asher family was eating.
“Mr. Kan! Good evening.”
“Hi Nonna. Good evening. I need to talk to your parents today.”
Nonna replied “Hmm?”, looking at her mother, Anna. She still couldn’t understand the intricacies of conversation. Anna responded with a smile.
“What can I help you with, Mr. Kan?”
“This girl’s physical ability is unusual. She has quick reaction, jumping power, eyes and body acuity to see the opponent’s movements, and can react in an extremely short time. I want to know what kind of parenting you did to nurture her like that.”
Anna looked at her husband with a troubled face.
Jeffrey opened his mouth after receiving his wife’s gaze.
“Ever since my wife became this child’s mother, she seems to have taught her various movements in the form of play little by little every day. I don’t think she realizes how much ability she has, she only learned it through play.”
Prompted by Jeffrey, Anna explained in detail how she had taught Nonna the basic skills.
Incorporating martial arts into her games, and teaching her how to climb trees, spin in the air, and climb over fences.
“Ah. Games. I see. Although I knew that strictly teaching like an eagle was not the only way. Seeing this success seems to force me to rethink my teaching methods.”
Nonna was impatient and asked her parents what they were talking about.
“What? Daddy, mommy, what are you talking about?”
“He’s praising Nonna for how good Nonna’s movements are.”
“Since retiring from the position of head of the family, I have devoted myself to teaching young people…”
Mr Kan laughed wryly at that.
“I’m impressed by the wonderful skills a child can learn through play. From now on, when teaching young people and children, it seems better to think more about how to do it. I really learned something.”
Mr. Kan’s teaching style changed little by little from the next day.
As far as children’s training was concerned, they began to incorporate a little play at the end of training. Guidance for adults remained the same.
Throughout her time in Shen, Nonna continued to attend Mr Kan’s trainings.
By the time they return to Ashbury five years later, she had become so proficient in martial arts that even Jeffrey could not let his guard down.
(What would it be like if there were no physique or weight difference?) He was surprised at Nonna’s progress.
“Your body is a weapon.”
One day, Nonna fixed her breathing, decided on a style, and muttered so with a serious face.
Seeing Nonna like that, Jeffrey panicked (Huh? Did I let her have too much freedom?), but Anna
“Isn’t it fine? Life is more fun if you can try things than if you can’t.”
She was laughing leisurely.
Still, as a mother, she was a little cautious.
“Nonna, I think it’s very nice, but it’s better not to show that style and face to other people. Also, let’s say ‘Your body is a weapon’ only in your heart.”
After Nonna replied lightly, she gave a high kick in the air with a “Ha!”, then rushed over to Anna and hugged her.
“Oh my. What a spoiled child.”
It was not long before the Asher family returned home.
