    The Top 13 Signs You've Joined the Wrong Martial Arts School

    13> Your dojo's symbol is a bullseye target.

    12> First demonstration consists of falling to the floor, curling
    into the fetal position, and whimpering pitifully.

    11> Frequent pauses while instructor tearfully stops to right his
    spilled pocket protector.

    10> The "gis" are used hospital gowns, and the "throwing stars"
    are just slices of old cheese.

    9> The homework is always just to watch a Jackie Chan movie.

    8> The techniques are only effective if your attacker is one of
    the Three Stooges.

    7> Instructor's low fees enhanced by take from one-on-one "pop
    quizzes" in dark alleys.

    6> Benihana has a restraining order against your instructor.

    5> Local muggers gather in the parking lot waiting for class to
    end.

    4> Current students bark out on cue the phrase "Insurance does
    not exist in this dojo!"

    3> You take yourself to the mat 4 out of 5 times simply trying
    to tie your belt on.

    2> Sensei's "ancient Chinese secret" required notifying the
    neighbors when he moved in.


    and the Number 1 Sign You've
    Joined the Wrong Martial Arts School...


    1> Did Confucius ever really say he was "going to open up a
    can of whoop-ass" on someone?

    Hee, hee! Good ones, Bob--especially the Confucious one.
