When I first began studying the martial arts, I would warm-up before class by sharply raising each leg over my head, to stretch the back of my legs. (Can't do that anymore!) Looked like a punter as he kicked a football. Anyway, I once kicked so hard and so high that my post leg flew out from under me, and I landed flat on my back. Knocked the wind out of me, but gave the class a good laugh, as I recall.

I've seen this happen many times, almost happened to me last week. I felt my foot starting to go and somehow managed to keep my balance, but it was close!

I also remember one of my class mates doing a flying side kick one time. It was beautiful, perfect position and technique. He was so surprised and excited that he actually managed to do it, that he forgot to put his feet down and went straight down, landing still in that perfect flying side kick position. ouch

I was in class one day. Turned to talk to the person behind me. Jammed my elbow into the seat of the chair. Had to yank it out. Watched as my arm went numb. Next thing i knew i was lyiing on the floor looking at the ceiling. Teacher called for an ambulance, i felt really embarrassed. Thats what happens when you hit a pressure point just right.

Reminds of the neverous boxer pacing back in forth, his corner men asked him why are u so neverous. He looked across the ring and said "You see how bad that guys beating his self up, he must be one Bad A$$ dude". I'm not sure I can hit that hard. LOL!!!!

You guys are Bad A$$ and didn't know it. Or maybe you do in regards to the topic.

I kneed myself in the head playing volleyball. That's right, volleyball.

I trip walking down the street on perfectly flat ground ALL the time. My friends always say, "are you serious? You actually TRIPPED while just trying to walk?? HAHAHAHAH!!"

To go into stupid clutz type mistakes in either MA or Breakin would require me to find an editor and publishing company....expect this epic to be in a store near you!
