Also, sempaiman, that's just your average wapanese. There are much worse.

I once met a Bujinkan instructor who would cross the road by doing 'commando rolls' when he was drunk.

a friend of mine likes to walk around spreading the gospel of Bruce Lee philosophies.
mainly the damn "be like water my friend" speech. he helps teach the kids classes from time to time and he always walks up and down the line of students like some colonel and puffs his chest out as he gives some more bullshit kung fu philosophy.

When I was a teenager and thought that Karate was cool I went to the local Shotokan Karate class which has been established in the area since the 1960's - it was like something out of a freaky dystopian future where old men barked commands and young kids in white pyjamas slavishly followed every stupid order. The sight of 40 other teenagers in pyjamas doing upper blocks still haunts me.
Struck me also that there was a very creepy sado-masochistic element to the whole thing.

Brolly = umbrella.
Rolls across road when drunk, wonder if he stills does that or has he got an instructional video how to end up in a wheelchair?

To this day I don't know how I met this particular character who somehow knew my kung fu teacher but to make a long story short he hired me to fix his computer. Of course there's nothing wierd about that but he was one of those people who watch what you're doing the whole time (that drives me crazy), and after talking to him for a bit we got into the subject of prison. He told me he had spent some time in jail. I wish I could remember the name of the place but I remember looking it up and it was reserved for murderers and what not. Anyways, knowing I was into kung fu at the time he told me some stories about "jailhouse rock" and boxing in prison. I feigned interest and then he started showing me his machate set and then got his hand gun set out and offered to sell me one.
This may not sound that crazy but it was a very strange situation.

Oh, and another surreal thing I saw. Back when I took kung fu I was helping my instructor at a new school he just opened. A father and son pair showed up for the class, and the son (who looked to be about 25) had on a hat with marijuana leafs all over it. He looked like he was into more than weed.
Anyways, after class my instructor was talking to them and the father mentioned his son has had martial arts experience in the class. After that the son just randomly started throwing thrust kicks in the air like he had to prove something to us. Anyways, the more his father talked about his sons MA experience the crazier he got until he got into full blown, shitty shadow boxing complete with rolls and flailing arms. Needless to say I had a very difficult time stifling my laugh. After all that was done with the son started talking with me and told me he'd rather go to the local ninjitsu school since they practice more "eye pokes and stuff." I can't say I wasn't happy to see him leave.

I know I'd be thinking what a crim used the gun for, that'd be creepy enough.

When I was 12 I had a Tang So Do instructor who would have all these stupid ass training scenerios (sp?). This like "this is how you fight someone on horse back, here is how you stop someone with a knife in one hit, ect." He finally got busted for burglery after the home owner shot him a couple of times.
