Maybe he heard 'fishingrod karate?'

I was helping a student out during the oral examination portion of his test. He had to name vital points on the body and had missed a couple. I pointed to my upper lip and he says "PHILTRUM, MA'AM!!" "And you missed this one." (pointing to my solar plexis) "SOLAR SYSTEM, MA'AM!!"

Sorry it was a bad one. That 'Oklahoma Japan' was too funny to pass up.

Anyway, 'isshinryu' 'fishingroo' ? (just don't let Victor see this)

People in Oklahoma Japan have problems with words ending in 'd'

That's why we don't have 'isshinryud'

Testing last week their response to a simple grab & pull, a very young girl was heard to gleefully exclaim "...YAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOO..." as she was pulled forward rapidly into her strong horse stance (neutralizing the pull)!

During testing over the weekend classes were asked assorted very simple questions on an individual basis, while going down the line checking their fist positions.

"...Jimmy, where do our punches go in the middle of the body? Where should you put your punches..."

Unsure, young Jimmy thinks a moment and then responds loudly his smile joyous now having remembered the correct answer "...THE SOLAR BREAKFAST..." he chimes pointing to his belly button...



The things they do say...
