HA HA! Some of these are hallarious. So i have to share mine.
We had a guy come in who had taken kung fu before hand. This Kung Fu-he claimed to me- was a extremelly rare style, known as, no lie "Japanese Kung Fu". So of course i asked him where i could find one of these schools and he quickly responded by naming a few capital cities. The same guy also told me of an instance where he was about to be mugged by 5 guys and as soon as they attacked, he remembers nothing, just that he woke up with a bar in his hand and all the would-be muggers around him unconcious. He said the instance frightened him because of how he knocked them all out so he quit kung fu soon after. He was a strange character that lasted about 2 weeks.
Darn, i had another one but i forget it, oh well, when i think of it i will post it.
Fun thread,
Matt
P.S. If there seriously is Japanese Kung Fu somebody tell me . It would be Karate right??

anyone care to share your nightmare stories of the students from Hell?

* We had a guy with a spitting habit...on the dojo floor. the same guy used to blow snot rockets on the wall or wipe it on his Gi. He quit in less than a year.


Hey dude thats my habit,,,see while your watching the snot and if you sparred with me,, you wouldnt notice my techniques ,you never trained hard enough to cough spit ,and buster douglas was seen to have been doing against tyson,,,maybe thats why he got k.o.d I hope if you ever have to defend yourself you aint gonna be watchin the snot and not your attacker.
"Hey man great snot ouch"
Na realy some people spit before they attack,, distraction technique? maybe a 10th dan sensei taught him this technique...ooohhh grasshopper spit two three spit,,,,mawashi geri ---spit----- mawishi -geri
ooohhh grashopper you are spitting well here is your dan grade ooohhh where is my cash grashopper,,,,
* we had a tall overweight 30-something eagle boy scout who still lived with his mother. constantly complained red-in-the-face when you hit him too hard. nickname: Baby Huey. lasted 6 months.

Hey man go easy on people like this thats why they do martial arts.
* biker guy. sortof cool but slightly crazy personality. in the dojo he was an over-intense A-hole. (he made it to green belt and quit -we later found out he was in jail). He insisted on full-contact to people joining on their first week. always smelled like weed. and when he laughed, moose would come out of nearby woods thinking they've found a mate. always forgot to take his rings off before kumite. always had problems with dues.

Only moose????
Sooner or later in your training, you are bound to see a few people cross your path that cause you to ask yourself... WTF was THAT?

lets hear 'em.




The best one is the yellow belt who is in fact an under cover highly trained reborn ancient ninja sent to see if the karate katas are still being used as a dance,
They are the ones to watch out for.

originally it meant chinese hand and the meaning was later changed because the japanese and chinese basically hate each other. and i beleive the original occupants of japan were chinese so any art they practised was kung fu. so any japanese art we practise now is a different style of kung fu with different principles.

i'm not 100% sure about this so correct me if i'm wrong there. thanks.

I prefer the open hand meaning to the chinese hand meaning. to me if you try living life with open hands, see what it changes in you're life.

And if you try living life with chinese hands the police drag you in and ask you a lot of questions.

Unless you're chinese.

*One guy who's in my intermediate class is just a little strange. I can't tell exactly what's going on, but he acts normal and seems to actually be pretty funny, but when he gets on the mat, it's like he's confused, angry, frustrated, and has left his brain along with his shoes off the mat. Very odd, really .

Sounds like me as soon as I step into the dojo - adrenaline from excitement.

As a student myself the worst are teenage boys...for the first couple of weeks anyway. Usually they learn the hard way after a couple of weeks.

We also used to have a girl whose eyes would constantly fill with tears during class, she would berate herself after each technique even though she was pretty good and very natural for a beginner.. it`s hard to train at your best when she is punishing herself for not being able to do in a month what has taken you 2 years to achieve. She left after 4 months and after that time I thought she was as good as some people who had been there longer than me, oh myself included of course. Her self confidence never improved like her technique did.

We also had a guy that used to turn up to charm the ladies, strangely that did`nt last long.

*One student made seal noises throughout the class, was kicked out by the instructor.

*The first time I met one of the higher graded students in my club i offered him a handshake and he said "I don't like to be touched" He must freak out whenever its time for partner-drills.

I wonder what he would say to a mugger? "Sorry, I don't like to be tou--"
