Sunday Morning Karate

About a year and half ago, a fellow green belt and I were standing around before one of our Sunday morning open workouts chatting with one of our black belts who rarely came to these classes.  I asked the black belt about her appearance that day, and she replied that she typically goes to church on Sunday mornings and was actually feeling a little guilty about missing it.

“Yeah, well, karate is kind of like church,” I offered.

“Kind of,” she replied dubiously, “except without God and without the praying.”

“Oh, I don’t know,” piped up the other green belt, “I find myself praying a lot during class!”

Amen.
