FUCKING GRRR

Today I went to hapkido like anyother day. We learned how to defend against a side kick. For some reason the foot work with the hand work I couldn't get it. There is a certain way to grip the leg, a certain place to step foward with your foot, then a way to sweep your foot on the floor so you can sweep the other foot to spin around with...then there is a certain thing you have to do with your other foot and a certain thing you have to do with your hip and then the man will certainly hit the floor....hard. A couple of times my Kwan Jang Nim said "good good" and gave me the thumbs up...but that was only 2 times out of the 30 times or so I drilled. My K.J.N stepped in to show me how to do it but he moves so fast even when he moves slow it's hard to see. I don't know, I was pissed off that I couldn't get it. Then my Sau Bam Nim stepped in to work with me and this is just a rediculously fast and rediculously amazing martial artist. A world champion. He decided it would be funny to see if I could defend against a fast kick. I COULDN'T EVEN GET THE SLOW KICK DOWN. So he kicks me as fast as he can...I didn't even touch his leg before it was already back. He didn't kick me that hard but it was pretty funny how fast this guy was. I kinda feel like this is the first time I "failed" them because I couldn't do something but whatever, the time had to come.

In about 10 mins i'm getting picked up by my co-worker and Hapkido partner to go to his house. His wife and him invited me over for dinner. After that i'm gonna head down town to loosen up with some friends. Today is a sad day for the Jake Man.

p.s...I got my first nick name. I got it because I hold the foozeball table handles like a spec. ed kid....They call me Corky...the spec. ed guy from "life goes on." They thought it was even funnier (and so did I) when they found out that I was actually in spec ed. AND rode the short bus to school cause I got kicked off the big one. OOO man good times. I'll be back at this blog in a couple of days since I had to cancel my Seoul/casino trip because i'm saving for India....which also reminds me I have to blog about that. SO CHECK BACK SOON. LATERZ
