Can You Defeat a Mugger with One Karate Chop?
Before I tell you about the mugger I took out with one Karate chop, let me explain something.
The Martial Arts are about extra normal abilities you gain.
You learn to feel things before they happen, to detect the presence of people sneaking up on you, and so on.
Heck, sometimes you can even read minds.
It’s pretty cool.
So I was getting close to my Black Belt in Karate, and things were starting to pop in my universe. Odd things, even having visions, it was truly weird.
But, I could feel my martial arts pushing me right up to the edge, and I was falling gleefully over…and then there was the night I took on a mugger.
It was Christmas, and we lived in a small apartment. Real small. There was a top room for sleeping, and there was a bottom room for eating and TV and living and…small.
The bathroom was under the stairs.
So I woke up, and it was pitch dark, and I felt the call of nature.
I walked down the stairs, not bothering with the lights because, heck, I was a martial artist! I could feel my way around. I was real zen, man.
I walked under the stairs, tripped on something, and suddenly…I felt it!
A large shape coming down on me! A mugger! Somebody had come into the house and was going to grab me!
With perfect reflexes i swung and executed a perfect Karate Chop…to the Christmas tree.
The thing I had tripped over was a electrical cord to the tree, and I had pulled the tree on myself.
The lights went on, and my wife’s mouth dropped open. I had killed the Christmas tree, and christmas lights were all over the place, along with pine needles, presents, and embarrassment.
Now, that’s the story of how I defeated the Mugger with one Karate Chop. And, let me tell you, if that tree had been a real mugger, it would have been one dead mofo!
You know, if you want some of those extra abilities, if you want to evolve yourself with a true martial art, unchanged by tournament and protective pads and mommies that hug their little babies a little too tightly, you might try the Kang Duk Won.
