You know you're obsessed with martial arts when..

If you spend all your free time on forums.
You do kata in strange places.
You constantly kick the top of door frames.
Open/close doors and turn on/off lights with your feet.
You're always thinking about how you would fight so-n-so.

your turn........

Its 4.42 am. your time. Don't you ever sleep? Its 5 pm my time.

You go into a cat-stance when someone go past in a crowded lift.

You breathe out forcefully through the mouth and sink your chi to the tan tien after zipping up.

You do a slow punch, sanchin-like, when happen to walk past a mirror.

You tear french loaves with an eagle claw.

When you 'KIAI!' at, ahem, 'intimate' moments

When you use the yard brush as a Jo instead of getting rid of the leaves.

When it takes more than 30 mins a week to polish and oil your bladed weapon collection.

When you pass a building site, you size up timber for strikes, not home improvement.

When you instinctively drop and do 20 on your knuckles if you mess up at work.

I work anywhere from 7pm - 8am.(My job is so difficult I have to do something to occupy my time)

When someone goes to shake your hand and you put them in a wristlock!
When you bow to people instead of shake hands.

when you are conscience of body mechanics when preparing dinner.

You test your reflexes by teasing the cat.

More than 50% of your dvd library has subtitles.

People at work ask you about the bruises on your forearms.

Walking down the street, you imagine an assailant and 'shadowbox' a technique around every corner.

You blow out candles with the compressed air of a punch.

When you practice chokes on your pets.
When you wear your gi in Wal-Mart!
When you have more than three shirts with your school's name on them.
When someone is talking to you and you block them out looking for "targets" !

You are chosen to go on the television show Extreme Makeover and you ask the plastic surgeon to make you look like Choki Motobu.

From http://users.binary.net/thomcat/Stupidma.html

* you say to the salesman in the men's store, "Nice pants, but I don't think I can kick in them."
* when you want to say "I'm sorry" and involuntarily bow.
* you go to the shoe store to try on shoes.
* Instead of walking or jogging around the store, you practice pivoting, sweeps, stances and kicks.
* You check to see if the shoe has a sufficiently hard striking surface and whether it protects the toes well
* and lastly, you don't even care if (and they probably are) the other patrons are looking at you funny. (That's the big clue)
* Now when every time you pass a wall you start to wonder:'Is that structural or drywall?' THEN you know you've gone overboard.
* When you hit your head on a low doorway or ceiling and kick it in anger and damage it.
* "GAK! NO! The *left* side of the bathrobe goes on top...."
* "What was I doing in my office when I was spinning around and flailing my arms and legs? Ahhhhhmmmmmmm....."
* when you're practicing your arm blocks while driving down the highway, notice someone in another car staring at you, and suddenly turn your block into vigorously fanning away an imaginary fly
* when you use various strikes to turn lights off and on;
* don your clothing with kicks, thrusts, and punches
* open and close doors with spinning kicks
* find yourself idly doing iaido and kenjitsu moves with the plastic knives at the fast food place
* can't walk by anybody else from your school without casually exchanging a flurry of mock strikes and kicks
* haven't gotten over the phase of seeing everybody walking around with a blanket of little red cross-hairs on all their vital spots
* leap to your feet and shriek with indignation while watching "Kung Fu", "Walker, Texas Ranger", and "Highlander" at home
* deliberately go to see martial arts movies in the theater so you can leap to your feet and shriek with indignation during the movie, out in the parking lot, and with all your friends the next time you're at class
* find yourself practicing bo staff techniques in miniature with your pencil during dull meetings
* try to backfist the correct floor button on the inside of the elevator, based on your memory of the button's location, before you get in far enough to see it
* notice you never stand with your arms crossed or your hands in your pockets
* tend to keep at least one flavour of martial arts weapon close at hand by your bed when you sleep
* buy shoes either because they're particularly flexible or have steel toes
* have at least one fantasy where you are a martial arts hero and end the fight by saying something *so* cool that you make Arnold Shwarzenegger and Clint Eastwood look like nervous chatterboxes
* have begun to master the reflex to commit a very messy homicide when, directly after someone finds out you practice martial arts, they immediately ask "Are you a Black Belt ???"
* Urge to bow every time I enter or leave a room? Uh, not anymore, thankfully.
* I used to accidentally call one of my favorite professors 'sensei' with fair regularity, and I don't think I'll ever stop saying 'hai!' instead of 'yes!'.
* When standing in line you find yourself practicing some stance from your art
* When you bow going into and out of the bathroom
* When you don't use any tools while splitting firewood.
* When you are introduced to someone and you bow to greet them.
* Whenever you see some wood or concrete, even things like stools or tables, and get excited while you picture just how you would go about breaking it. Then you get funny looks as you feel it and give it a look of hard concentration, then maybe measure off a few times.
