Our son, was very shy as a youngster. My husband signed both himself and our son into karate class. They both went on to get black belts after several years.

The thing I liked about it, was:
They could do this together
He was with all sorts of students, and could get a lot of input on to how people handled themselves in various situations.

They teach you how to avoid a fight. It was really more about self asteem, and confidence. Politeness, and respect for others.

There was a routine, and commitment to show up, and practise, work towards a goal.

He had to eventually teach the little ones, or beginners.
This was a challange for him. He claimed they would not listen to him, and do what he asked LOL!

He turned out a great young man.

What ever you get him into, I wish you sucess, and good luck.
