Dojo No No Go Go

While I had high hopes of becoming warrior woman and renewing my martial arts skills, my last trip to the dojo proved to be a little disconcerting. For starters, the school has changed from what it was 12 years ago. There is much less emphasis on technique and form (which builds confidence in using those skills) and a TON of focus on sparring. I found myself too far outside my comfort zone with the grappling and sumo wrestling (like, wait, isn't this karate class?), and the final straw came when one of the students got his leg broken during some intense sparring (complete with screaming and being carried out to be taken to the hospital.) This, my friends, was the recipe to send this girl packing up her gee bound for the nearest yoga class. Ommmmmmmmmmmm.

How awesome is this picture of Keira Knightly in her role as Guinevere in King Arthur.


  1. What a total bummer, that is really disappointing, hopefully something else will come up. I love that pic of Keira, she is da bomb.
