    Smile Kenpo Addict

    How many of you have ever been called a kenpo addict?
    Is that a bad thing if you are?

    Never called that; but, people are surprised when I read a book without a sword on it.

    Does it make you an addict if your instructor asks you when you're going to put a cot in the back room and sleep there?

    Thumbs up Re: Kenpo Addict

    I refer to myself as a "Kenpo Addict" & on his MT profile my instructor calls his job the thing "that supports his Kenpo habit."

    There was a running joke at my school that I was sleeping on the couch above the office. This may have something to do with the fact that I would show up on saturday mornings sometimes at 5 or 6 am.
