Oh lads, oh lads, oh lads (and lasses).As an overweight Nidan, I feel sure that several people could quite easily high kick and or punch me. Could I retaliate? Don't know. Possibly the best thing would be pre-emptive retaliation, as my Sensei teaches occasionally. Gotta go now, us fat blokes will be training soon.
I didn't see this one coming.
Sorry Jim, no offence meant -- really.
By the way, I had a taekwondo teacher who was overweight as a youngster. He got involved in soccer then taekwondo as a way (art?) to get in shape. He trained hard and toughened up BIG TIME. I fact, he was like a brick s**t house when I joined his class! He was one of the most talented, strongest, dedicated -- and nicest -- people I've met.
So, just wanted to clear up the fact that I've got nothing against body types!
