When you started your Martial Arts journey and you were the excited newbie in the class, what was the first thing you wanted to learn. What was it that you just couldn't wait to be shown. A certain kata? A technique? what?

When I started Karate I wanted to learn katas really really bad. I thought they were so cool! :D
Sweeps.

Kali. After watching Jason Bourne(Matt Damon) stab that assassin in the hand with the pen, I internally shouted "THAT ONE"!!!!!

I mean it would've been nice to learn how to circle properly but those idiots couldn't have even been bothered to do that right.

How to send people flying back or put them on the ground with a seemingly light touch.

I straight up wanted to be Sho Kosugi or a ninja turtle. I wanted to vanish into a cloud of smoke and use "ninja magic" to solve every problem lol Then, when reality kicked in and my Sensei brought me back down to earth, I really learned to enjoy joint manipulation and pressure points. It's not flashy and movies won't be made about those techniques, but I found it fascinating.

In retrospect, I should have learned to bob, weave, and cover. It was 1964 in my old boxing days, and my "style" was more Rocky Balboa than Sugar Ray Leonard !
