Ava Kalea is going to be learning martial arts with her dad as soon as possible. In preparation she has been watching YouTube videos of other youngsters practicing varying forms of martial arts.
One of Ava’s favorite Karate girls is Jesse- Jane McParland from Ireland. “JJ” as some call her, is a YouTube sensation, has over 117 total martial arts titles and has made several amazing appearances on Britain’s Got Talent.
Here is Jesse-Jane McParland, aka JJ Golden Dragon in a private dojo.
This is Jesse-Jane’s first appearance on Britain’s Got Talent at age 9:

A couple of days ago, Ava Kalea rolled over for the very first time – and her mom was actually taking video! Please enjoy – feel free to share and comment.
I thought this was really cool – especially considering she was only 9 weeks and 2 days in our world. My mom says that I did not roll over until I was 5 months old! (Girls are definitely quicker than boys).
It is with great pride, happiness and special gratitude that I am excited to share that Ava Kalea Kennedy was born this morning at 9:54 am. Stacia Kennedy did an awesome job throughout the pregnancy and labor, giving life to a 7 pound, 1 ounce, and 19.75 inch long healthy baby girl. AND she did it all naturally -without any pain meds (she’s tough).
Thank you to the midwives and great staff at USCD Medical Center, who are all overworked and under paid I’m sure. At the very least, they have to cope daily with aged facilities lots of varied situations.
I’ll certainly be posting more pictures and video real soon.
