10. You instructor has a Grandmasters Certificate. In Crayon.

9. The Senior Assistant Instructor is a 4 year old black belt.

8. The sign in the window says the school trains in more than
10 martial arts.

7. Its a Korean art. {g}
[Ed. Note: HEY!!]

6. Your instructor tries to sell you Amway products.

5. While examining the schools tournament trophies, you find
3 for spelling bees.

4. Reading the contract for the school is considered a kata
(and a long one at that).

3. No one sweats.

2. While at a tournament, your opponent finds out who your
teacher is and high-fives his teacher.

1. When paying for your belt examinations, the instructor asks:
"Do you want fries with that?"

Never had Amway, did however have Mary Kay, and Nutralite.

OK, I've got nine of them. Do I have to worry even though I don't know what number 4 is?

I gotta say that my instructor showed me his katana, which looked like the one from the souviniers store. But he assurred me that the one in the shop was a copy. His katana wasn't sharp, but he told me that he'd done it himself, since it was one of those katana's that would leap out at people and strike. Consideret guy.... He also showed me a picture of him and O-sensei, from when he got his 3dan in Aikido. And He got it when he was 18(his 20 now)... I'm really impressed.

And to top it off, and show how a nice guy he is, he promised to take care of ALL my money and belongings. He's the expert at taking care of things.... Isn't this great!

I recommend this dojo for everybody, and if your lucky you can see my intstructors katana....


:rofl:
