    Do you shadow box in public?

    Do you shadow box in public? Well, not necessarily in public, but outside the gym. For example when at work? When I was in school I used to practice kung fu forms and shit in the hallways between classrooms at midnight when I thought no one else was watching. I imagine this one time someone walked in while I was 360 degrees through a 540 kick.
    That shit is really queer, isn't it?

    And today, I took a break to use the bathroom and started shadowboxing in front of the mirror. I still had my goggles on my head. I was practicing slipping, bobbing and weaving. I slipped, I bobbed, I weaved, I weaved too hard. My goggles flew off my head and straight into the urinal. Straight into the fucking urinal. I'm done with this shit. Besides, it's extremely gay.

    Any similar experiences? No?

    I only shadow box in public because I want everyone to know what it is that I do...and because a TapouT shirt just isn't fkin enough.

          I used to imagine shooting on people who looked like tools, and alot of times I'd find myself half-feigning high attacks and then lurching forward on whatever leg was in front. My girlfriend and my sister in law have both caught me shadow boxing at home, which is pretty embarressing since I've never taken any stand up arts other than kiddie TKD and some krotty. My bjj school closed down after I had only four months of classes, so I have a hard enough time shooting in real life, but I probably looked like I had tourettes or cerebral palsy or something walking/jerking around campus like that.

                Done it plenty myself.
                First time out on the night-club dance floors I threw some boxing footwork around..... You can imagine I'm not a great dancer...
                Then again it lets people know what you do to pass the time :qgaraduat

                  I do it all the time. I barely even realise I'm doing it sometimes.

                      The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

                        That is not conducive to passionate cunnilingus, my friend, let me assure you.

                            I shadow box in the car, in class, while coding, while eating, I've done kali drills with a butter knife while sitting at IHOP, I've done Wing Chun forms in the shower, I've thrown people with O-Goshi as a form of greeting, I have a friend, an old WC classmate and we still chainpunch at each other whenever we see each other. I've gone for a double leg in public on people from my gym. Yeah, I love this stuff.
                            I do not aspire to be great, or even good, I hope to suck a little less then last class.

                              I only realize I'm doing it when my wife pokes me and says, "Not in public, you're embarassing me." Then again, I'm not sure if that's shadowboxing or me just getting frisky.
