I KO'd myself today. It's one thing to knock somebody else out but you have to be pretty talented to knock yourself out. We were sparring in class and I went to do a right leg cresant kick, left leg round kick then a right leg back kick but as I was coming around on the back kick a wave of pain went through my body from the muscle in my lower back I pulled doing who knows what last week. I coupled over but as I did the person was coming around with a round kick so my face hit their knee on the way down. I was only out for a few seconds but I felt pretty silly when I came to.

using a floor to ceiling speed bag, I went for a hook, but ended up hugging the bag as it made severe physical contact with my face. It seems that I drop my left guard too much.

Moral: Don't drop your guard, and if you want to hug a floor to ceiling speed bag, wait til it stops. Also, headbutts don't work if you try using your eye.

I was using your regualr hanging punching bag at Tae Kwon Do and we were doing side kicks. I ended up with the light bag so every time I'd hit it, it would swing right back. Right after doing a side kick the instructor came over and asked me to do it again. I got distacted by that and neglected to realize that what goes up must come down. The bag swong back and knocked me to the ground.

Bet that was a lesson well learned

I'll make sure to keep that in mind

Very much so, however I was more embarresed then I was anything else until I got home and actually felt the headache

Me too!! But I am also a klutz who thinks she's superwomen. I never did go to the clinc to see if I had a concussion after knocking myself out. I've been ignoring the pulled muscle in my back. You know how I broke my ankle? I tripped in a hole, thats right, just tripped in a hole. I don't have any interesting sparring story to tell I get to tell everybody that I tripped in a hole I didn't see. And after I did it I was fully prepared to just get on a streetcar and go home. Figured I could just walk it off. That attitude cost me two surgeries.

You would think I would learn by now I am not made of steal and drop the "it won't happen to me" and "it'll go away on it's own" attitude.

This reminds me of that "owned by physics" vid we saw going around a while ago.

I must admit, KOing yourself is quite a rare talent. Try not to use it too often.

Christie,

Don't feel to bad about this. I once sprayed myself with pepper spray while trying to escort someone out of a bar fight. I was doing a wrist lock and turned the cannister toward myself and accidentally sprayed myself directly in the face.

In another incident a friend of mine knocked out another police officer with a flash light while trying to break up a fight using a restraint hold.

Sh** happens! Hang in there.

Trying to be a smarta$$ showoff, I was trying to knock over a Wavemaster with stepping through spinning back kicks, when I planted right into the bag as it was on its way back, and knocked myself flat on my back. Boy did I feel silly.

I kicked myself in the head once, and it left a bruise.
