I went to the mall once and ran into a karate instructor. I assume he was there trying to drum up business for a local dojo. That’s what it’s called, right? If watching The Karate Kid has taught me anything, it’s that they used all the correct terminology in that movie. Anyway, this guy wasn’t trying to sign me up for classes, ’cause he could tell I was a fatty and wouldn’t be into that kind of thing. Instead he asked me to take a short survey. I figured, why not?
Question 1: If you were to take a martial arts class, what would be your motivation: self-defense or fitness?
Really? Those are my only options? What if I just wanna beat people up?
Question 2: Would you recommend martial arts classes as a way to keep in shape for adults?
Honestly, no, but I said yes anyway. I was a little afraid that this guy would beat me up if I had anything negative to say.
Question 3: Do you know anyone in the area that may be interested in taking a martial arts class?
I don’t know… Do you offer the crane technique? According to Mr. Miyagi, if done correctly, no can defense. If so, sign me up.
