Today, in my karate dojo, I was being taught how to fall properly. My sensei instructed us not to fall with our hands out because it could sprain our wrists. As I was getting ready to help demonstrate a backwards break fall, I actually fell over. Guess where my hands went. FML

That awkward moment when your instinct betrays you. :/


It seems like instinct to do so even though you know not to huh?

It's hard to ignore those basic instincts... And putting your hands out to catch yourself is one of the most basic..

Wasn't this posted once before?

Nobody blames you, after years of Karate I could never teach myself to do that. :)

Btnhdude no one really cares. I highly doubt you truly are, since people don't make stupid comments on fml when they are drunk. Nice try at looking cool though?

Karate or MMA--check both out, but make sure that whichever you pick teaches you both striking and grappling.

Mma isn't a style of fighting, fool. Its the sum of multiple fighting techniques. There are many forma of mixed martial arts.

GENIUS!!!! I was thinking the same thing...

No. That is where his remote control went after his karate subscription was canceled.

55 are you talking about runescape?

I thought it was Fallout 3...

I was aiming for Skyrim. Once you leave the house after days of skyrim, eyes on the skies. Always.

Guess you didn't learn much then?

That or OP's "sensei" doesn't know a thing. We do that so we don't hurt more important parts, for example: our head/brains! We have instincts for a reason.

Our instincts might save us, say from a fractured skull, but not without paying a price. Being able to fall properly ensures safety, prevention of broken bones etc. If anything, it complements your instincts.

28- No see your suppose to slap out with you arms and tuck your head in so you don't get a head injury or hurt your wrists because they could snap. He knew what he was talking about lol

Either it's a shitty school or your fairly new at it, I've taken karate for 10 years and the first thing I learned was to break that instinct to not hurt myself

aruam365 24

No, it doesn't ensure you won't get broken bones. We see patients CONSTANTLY who take martial arts and swear by it with broken bones and serious injuries because they do what these idiot instructors are telling them. Thousands of years of instincts > over some guy/gal who says otherwise. Hmmm... Smart of you.

52- That's common sense... and what most people do naturally if they fall backwards. Falling forwards, people put their hands out and break their wrists often.

That awkward moment when your instinct betrays you. :/

Hope your sensei doesn't freak over little things >.>

"Okay, so this is a correct fall, uh, ah!" *noise that's a mix between a small dog and a dying cat*

The fuck?

I actually broke my left wrist once falling backwards and landing with my hands... Sensei is correct.

You rack a disciprine!

You must first climb the 7000 steps to the monastery. Only then will your path be revealed and enlightenment be attainable.

climb to high hrothgar and master your thu'um

I was gonna make a skyrim joke until I saw 32 already did
