November is "Karate Sucks Month"
Kick, punch, it's all in the mind... especially you're training at one of the thousands of Karate McDojos around the world. It's all in the mind because you're rarely kicking or punching someone with any sincerity.
So why did it take us so long to get around to Krotty? WHO KNOWS THESE THINGS? Maybe it was our upbringing, or the public school system. Or maybe we felt bad because there's a whole group of karateka that actually fight (Kyokushin). Perhaps we were just waiting for a solid piece of writing about a young man's memories of McDojo training. Or not. I blame PizDoff.
Regardless, the month is here. There's a chill in the air as winter sets in. The days are getting shorter. And the leaves are dropping off the trees faster than students leaving a school that starts requiring full contact sparring.
It's time to wax on, wax off, and wax poetic about how much Karate sucks.
Videos and pictures of suckage now please.
Here's a classic:
Also, who knew that the ancient mystical Chinese secret to Miyagi's karate was to throw alternating left and right hooks.

Worse....but probably better than behind the back.
