Karate, judo, jui-jitsu, taekwondo, kickboxing, kung-fu fighting...it's all the same, right? Somewhere someone who's really into this stuff just popped a vein and assumed their fighting stance.
I know nothing about martial arts. Big Daddy did a post about Mixed Martial Arts (MMA, don't you know) and the commenters were all naming names and talking about flying roundhouses and did you see that guy kick the crap out of that guy. Huh? The only name that I recognized was Chuck Liddell, and that's because he was on Dancing With The Stars. He was a crap dancer. Why would I want to see him fight if he can't even execute a proper fleckerl in the Viennese waltz? :: nerd snort :: OK, I guess we all have our guilty pleasures.
Anyway, check out Audrey's form...
...yeah, she's about as forceful as a light breeze.
At the end of the class, all of the kids got some kind of notch on their belt, but we had promised Audrey that she would get a treat if she made it through the class. So when the teacher went down the line and did his little belt ritual, she was ready to cut to the cookie. If you turn the volume WAY up, you can almost hear her...
I don't know...blowing off the master teacher for a Peppermint Joe-Joe could be considered an ancient sign of disrespect.
This was a free trial class, and I'm still pondering whether or not to sign her up. I'm not sure that harnessing all of that fearsome aggression could come to any good.
