Oh of course, i forgot about loco guy nr 2, he came to the dojo, but hes from the gang area of the city, and he didnt have any technique when fighting, also a very muscled man, now i dont have a problem fighting bigger guys, but this dude was shot in the hand a few years ago, and he had some or other metal underneath his hand for protection or something, but the fact stays, it hurt like hell and he never stopped, but thats not the story i want to point out.

We use to have a kids class before our class, and while theyre still doing their thing, the seniors would come, get dressed warm up etc, and this guy rocked up agian. putting a GUN on the table, right there in the open, and no it wasnt a play gun or anything and then he left to get dressed or something. Now this idiot obviously didnt think, what if one of the kids took the gun and played with it? I pointed this out to our sensei, and he told the guy to keep his gun where no one can see it. And he did, then what happened, the sensei told us he got home a few lessons later and felt taht his bag is heavier than usual, this guy left his gun in the senseis bag during class. What if the cops pulled the sensei over and asked about hte gun???? And we dont know what the guy did with the gun beforehand!! Anyways, we were told that he was also "sorted out" and he also never came back.

LOL these are great. Ive got one!!!

Kung fu club on a college campus, I had joined the school that gives these semester long classes, I thought it would be a good time to continue to stay on top of my basics while helping these students learn. We have a variety of kids come through and one particular year we had a large freshman come out. let me give you the visual image.

-fairly tall 6'2?
-250+ lbs
-LARPer (live action role player, foam swords and renaisance fairs)
-talked about how he would become immortal
-talked about how he would kick my ass in a fight because of his "superior" weight which would simply crush me.

Now that's out of the way. After weeks of working on basics we had moved on to proper jumping, kicks, sweeps, ect. we got to one of my favorite techniques which involves jumping vertically and landing with your feet close, then you shoot your forward leg out with the side of the foot leading. Since he refused to wear the recommended sweatpants to class, he jumped up, landed, slid his leg out and ripped his pants in front of everyone. i couldnt help but to laugh.

There was this one guy, who suffered from horrible B.O...He was a nice enough guy, but he had very bad hygiene. He wouldn't cut his toe and finger nails....and they were extremely dirty. Sensei always paired me up with him when we worked some of our techniques....and almost every time he would scratch me accidentally.

Was your signature something that you were required to memorize, or the motto or something of your school? It does sound familiar, though. So, if not there, then where did you get it?

That is the "karate creed" written by Ed Parker. We had to memorize it for belt tests in kenpo.

Theres also this one guy, from the dojo in the next town, every few weeks, some of them comes to our dojo to practice here, but like clockwork, everytime situps needs to be done, he FARTS!!!

This past weekend we had a tournament. I was head judge in one of the rings. At the time, I had the 11-13 year old boys sparring division in my ring. One young man accidentally kicked the other in the jaw. I saw it and so did both side judges. I tell the kicker to watch the face. He argues, "I didn't even touch his face!" To him I respond, "I saw it and so did both side judges." He argues again, "NO! I DIDN'T!" I just calmly relied, "Keep the arguing up and I'll just go ahead and award the other student a point." He kept his mouth shut after that.
