You've ever created blisters on the bottoms of your feet without wearing shoes.

Your turn.

    You go to work with visible bruises on your forearms (particularly those in the shape of handprints from being grabbed around the wrists)

    You walk by things like signs and doorways and think "I can Kick That"

    You routinely turn on/off light switches with body parts other than fingers.

    Yeah, I've done all of these before.

    I'll also add, you've ever said things like: "He finished on my back", "Spent the entire weekend on my back", "He wouldn't let me mount him", "I was getting choked last night", "I had a roll with a guy who took his belt off", "I mounted and rode three guys last night till they were exhausted", "why are you walking funny?" "oh my a** is so sore from last night!", "I choked the last cop that touched me." or "you should've seen the size of the guy that I had to get off of me last night".

    He finished with a "Rear naked"

    When you are talking to people at home or work and answer 'oss'!

    True story -- had finger-bruises on my arm and had a very nice lady attempt to drag me to the women's shelter.

    That's exactly what my son did! He stubbed his toe on the floor while sparring and we are at week 5 of limited activity (hoping he is cleared to resume all activities before our in-house tournament on June 7th)

    Yesterday I had to go buy some more long sleeve shirts to cover obvious fingermarks around my upper arms! Id rather not have to explain myself...

    Nothing like a broken toe. Did the exact same thing about 6 months ago, and it's still not healed because I DO. NOT. WANT. TO. STOP. DOING. THINGS. Inactivity is just....my worst nightmare.

    So...I have now pretty much abandoned my big toe for the time being and don't even use it to walk. :s Grappling with it isn't easy though. :D

    I dislocated a finger last year on the floor :(
  • ArianeraArianera Posts: 136Member Member Posts: 136Member Member
    My son had his last follow-up for his toe and and was cleared for all activities (including sparring today), though the doctor recommended that he keep wearing the kung fu shoes rather than work barefoot for a while longer while he gets used to impact again

    You might be a martial artist if you will practice your forms and weapons anywhere. The neighbors especially love it when I practice weapons, especially kwan dao, in the street.

    You accidentally bow when you enter/leave a room.

    You go to buy a new car and the main criteria for selecting it is that it has to fit your kung fu weapons.
