I'm still pretty much learning the basics in Karate; I'm still a white belt. It's amazing how long it takes to get the basics down too! I love flowering weeds. Even with my book I have trouble identifying them half the time though.
 
Don't know much about Karate.
 
Found out I do know how to fall, though. Was leaving theatre showing of Avatar with a sister and brother. Wearing jeans and boots zipping along through the parking lot, and tripped. Not lots of time to plan anything. Immediately instinctively went into a tuck and spin.
 
Hit the concrete with no problem. For sure did not put out a hand to block fall. Good way to break a wrist. Got up and brushed off and continued on.
 
Is that something taught in Karate?
 
What about defense/attack?

Good for you! We did a little bit of falling practice in the first class I was taking. We do a lot of defense/attack sparring too; right now it's still noncontact.

Karate classes sound like a fun way to get some good defense skills and just in general build self confidence.

It certainly has helped in that way, for sure. :D

Gotta ask ... Does the Karate master address you as "Grasshopper"?
