I just saw this on Yonah Wolf's blog:

Nachas, is a Yiddish word which loosely translated means 'parental pride'. What relevance does this have to Judo? Well, yesterday my oldest took his first Judo lesson, and I have enough Nachas to fill a size 8 Judo Gi!

Yonah's blog, "The Road to Shodan," is always interesting and thoughtfully written. He discusses the actual practice of judo a lot more than I do. He sometimes plays at Oishi, so maybe I'll run into him someday if I ever take a day class.

Congratulations, Yonah! Or should I say mazel tov?
