My dojo is a lunatic asylum, I know this, but tonight we had a real lunatic come in. Literally he walks in and asks who the instructor is, I mean there are a bunch of white belts and black belt........it's not difficult.
So then he starts going on about how he's going to be the best ever at karate and he's going to evolve it and yada yada. This went on for 15 minutes while we put the mats away in silence, we couldn't get a word in edge ways; I tried talking to him and he just kept on talking. Then he suddenly says "Is this even karate?"
So we explained it was Aikido and sensei asked what he was looking for and he starts talking about how he wants to "be wise and know everything so that if I'm ever broke I can go in the UFC and win money and make something of myself"
By now we're on the verge of laughter, but everyone's keeping it polite as he goes on about how he wants to be the best ever at everything. Then it's how long to get black belt and how it won't take him that long.............
Sensei invited him down next class and he seems eager...........
