Karate Class Punchline

Being bullied in Kitimat, I agreed to take karate classes, promising my parents that I work hard at practice to protect myself from the bullies. My enthusiasm lasted right to the start of the first class… at which point I realized that many of the people I wanted protection from were taking the same karate class!  I still did the practice, but of course my participation in the classes was half-hearted at best due to that unwanted revelation. I did learn how to fall properly though; that oddly had served me better over the years than the actual karate.
