-when you switch from 14 oz. uniforms to 6 oz. uniforms to save space.
-when the most frequently used command is "turn."
-you ride from the top floor to the bottom floor while sparring to practice balance. the person who isn't sparring has to hold the "door close" button.
-the only range of fighting you practice is "close quarter"
-the master conducts the class by cell phone so you have room to practice.
-the poor transfer from the WTF school was knocked out during sparring, not because someone kicked him in the head, but because he did a jump kick and hit the ceiling. just earlier he tried a flying sidekick and flew out the window.
-the master can afford to buy new mats every 2 months.
-the term "toothpick bo" is taken a little too literally.

I've wanted to post on this thread for a long time but i never thought of any until tonight.

-you break a mirror just from turning.
-your sparring area is only allowing you to stand and kick in one spot.

If you're tired, kick some more. Your opponent most likely has extra kicks to spare on you.

Shomen is simply whatever direction people are standing in at the time, since they can't turn around.

- your Judo dojo is the only place which you need to make an appointment just to come and practice ukemi on Saturdays.

when you actually try to get caught in a corner while being attacked on the street because that's what you're used to.
