What are YOUR eleven-year-olds doing?

"When 3-year old Hale Motuapuaka told his parents, 

“I want to be a fire man,”

they knew he wanted to play with fire,
not put it out.
Turning 11 a couple of weeks ago,
Hale is the youngest professional fireknife dancer in Hawaii, maybe in the world, performing two nights a week for Malu Productions at the Hale Koa Hotel. He says he is “really ready to light it up” to win at next weekend’s World Fireknife Championship at the Polynesian Cultural Center."  Mahalo to Honolulu Pulse
