OK

Seriously.

I can't take this **** anymore.

There's one excuse for not sparring I hear way too often.

"I can't show up to work with a black eye" :ky:

OK, seriously people, let's have a serious, serious sitdown internet talk about how fucking often you actually GET a black eye training and what would REALLY happen at your job if you did show up with one.

Are you a model? An actress? A domestic violence counselor?

What is it about your jobs that keeps you from simply saying "Boxing is a hobby of mine, apparently the other guy takes it a little more seriously" or "Yeah, I was struck in the eye" or even just bullshit about a traffic accident or something if someone asks?

I simply no longer buy this **** where you can't even risk the marginal chance of a black eye at work. I don't buy that very many of you are actually walking home with black eyes.

Seriously. Tell me why you can't just tell your boss you do martial arts.

Because then your boss will want to fire you before you become "samurai sword wielding man was shot by police today"

Thanks for playing but you're too young to talk.

My profession is pretty conservative. Nobody bothers me much about visible injuries. I got the comment that I "must feel like I have something to prove" when I came into work with a purple eyesocket after getting kneed in the eye. But we're talking about once in a couple years.

People need to sack up, it's a terrible excuse.

Since i talk for a living, I'm more worried about a busted jaw or a concussion. Still spar though.

The Question

People at work know I do Martial Arts.

Sometimes I demonstrate my kung fu techniques in the break room at or around lunch time. No one seems to mind.

Why would they mind free entertainment?

Question, when you come in the room, do people stop talking and look at you?

And do you actually manage to interpret this in a positive way some how?

Seriously guys, get yourself a basic foundation and concealer (ask your g/f's, wife, mom or sister to help out) and use that to cover any facial bruises. :5innocent

You won't have to tell anyone you do MA, you get to keep your job, you don't scare your boss, you also retain the element of surprise in case you do have to beat someone up at work.

I work at a hippy liberal east coast college, and I've never had a problem with my boss from the numerous black eyes and facial cuts I've gotten. Tell your boss you walked into a door or something, you fucking pussies

I think ironically the worst job to show up to with a black eye is






a Professional Fighter. The scruntiny. The name calling. Make it stop....

Only now you'll have to explain why you are wearing make-up.

Didn't consider that bit. No one has to know about that either, use a make up sponge to evenly apply the foundation/concealer.

P.S. - don't use fake tan, lip gloss or eye liner.
