I'm not the man I never was

Started taking martial arts classes this week. Thought it would be a good way to work out, learn something new and rebuild the confidence.

Two classes later, the results are in: I'm sore as hell and have had the crap beaten out of me by a couple of teenage girls. One of them is 15 and weighs about 90 pounds. Looks like one of the girls in the eating disorder group from my recent rehab stay. Anyway, my instructor told me to punch her in head. Bad idea. My wrist will heal and the swelling will go down, but I'm not sure I'll ever be the same man again. (DWG Weight: 237 lbs.)

Way to cross train! Martial arts rock! I like to pretend that the moves I am doing in my cardio kickboxing class might actually hurt someone but I don't think they will. *sigh*

Yes, but the goal is to become the man you can never be!!

In sumo, body must be like stone, and mind like meatloaf.

When blog-skimming goes bad:

Marital arts classes? I wonder what those are like?

>I'm sore as hell and have had the crap beaten out of me by a couple of teenage girls.

Sounds like the highlight of a chicken ranch weekend in Vegas.

>I'm not sure I'll ever be the same man again.

Were you ever before?
