Using the Martial Arts to Dismember and Maim?
I got the idea for this title from a fellow who said, ‘What do we say when people ask us why we study karate?’
Well, I gave sound advice, tell them it’s good for you, tell them it gets rid of your hostility, tell them whatever, but who cares…you do them because you love them.
But…inside my insidious cranium, I was thinking something else. Tell them you do karate so you can more effectively hurt people. Tell them you like pain. Tell them it’s better than a knife or gun because you won’t leave evidence.
And then I started thinking about Zombies.
The zombies are big on TV today (walking dead), and World War Z is coming up on the big screen, hmmm.
When I was a kid zombies were slow moving. You could outrun them by breaking into a fast walk. But now, zombies are hyped up druggoids that can outrun a cheetah and are stronger than an elephink.
But what if they new Karate, too!
I mean, that would be killer diller zombies! I mean, the human race would be blotto in the time it takes wind a solar watch!
So now, when people ask me why I study Karate and all them other durned martial arts, I tell them it’s because of the zombies! I know the zombies are learning karate, so I figure I better learn Karate better! You know?
Zombie Karate, where your fist becomes so fast it is like a bullet to the brain!
Zombie Karate, where your kicks are so powerful you knock the head off a zombie!
Anyway, I don’t say those things, when people ask me why I learn karate, but…I should!
