I forgot to mention yesterday that I spoke to my neighbor who give martial arts classes out in his yard... I offered to work on his website in exchange for classes, since I'm broke, and he said "come on over and join in!"
So I went over there and learned a little bit... how to disarm a gunman, how to take someone down (even if they're bigger than you) and the proper way to fall. I have a few bruises... but so far so good. I'm just a little slow on the uptake. I wonder how long I'll have to keep at it before it comes naturally!
