You know you are doing too much karate if....

 I love reading jokes in the morning. It sets me up for a good mood. If you have a joke to share, please add it in a comment.

You know you are doing too much karate if....
  • You find yourself casually standing in a half cat stance.
  • You trip, go into a roll and come up in a fighting stance. In church.
  • You answer Ussss. To your boss or the cop that pulled you over
  • You are introduced to someone and you bow to greet them.
  • You tie your bathrobe belt in a perfect knot; then check to make sure the ends are exactly even.
  • You accept change from the cashier using a knife hand with the thumb carefully tucked in.
  • When you're outside doing gardening you practice with all the neat 'weapons'.
  • You look for new accommodation based on the amount of practice space it provides (who needs a bedroom?).
  • You find yourself practicing bo techniques in miniature with your pencil during dull meetings.
  • You notice you never stand with your arms crossed or your hands in your pockets.
  • You find yourself practicing stances while standing in lines. Strangely, most people are standing cautiously far, far away from you.
  • You don't use any tools while splitting firewood.

How my husband feels too!


  1. OR

    You only flip the light switch with front kicks...

  2. Hehe too true. I'm house hunting at the moment and my main concern is enough space for kata and somewhere to hang my bag.

  3. LOL about the kata. I recently bought my first duplex and my husband desire for a renter trumped my desire for kata space. I was so bummed

  4. Nice list!

    My husband and I have discussed bo technique in a restaurant using the butter knife as the bo. I think this made the waiter nervous. :)

  5. Nice Michele! I think bo is my favorite class
