Embarrasing First Self Defence Class

Published by at 11:30 am under All,Miscellaneous

I signed up membership with a fitness centre nearby on Monday.

Well, I was actually looking for Yoga classes as I have tried them before my second pregnancy.  But then, this fitness centre not only have Yoga classes, it has one other thing that attracted me – Practical Self Defence.

So, I ended up signed up for ‘All-In’ unlimited package as it is more worthy –> cost me less than 100 per month (pay up front for 12 months).  I know I am not preserverence when it comes to exercising, so I have decided to do this to make me commit.  (I am a very stingy person.  By paying 12 months, I will be very ‘samtong’ (sad) if I don’t fully use the benefit!)

Yesterday, I attended my first self defence class (already joined 2 yoga classes earlier).  I want to tell everyone – this is a very good and practical class!  It is definitely worthy to join!

But then… Well, since young, I was called ‘严重的缺乏运动细胞’ or in Malay we say ‘cacat bola’.  Basically I just don’t have any athletic sense.  When I played bowling, the ball goes to the back instead of into the lane.  When I played squash, the ball hits me instead of me hitting it.  When i played tennis, the ball goes high up instead of to the front.  When I do high-jump, I hit straight to the pole…

So, what happened yesterday was just too embarassing…

First, when I was supposed to kick the sand bag, my shoe flew out!  I had to run to get my shoe and wore it again (with my red face, of course!)

Then, when I was supposed to turn around and kick the sand bag… after I turned around, I immediately fell on the floor – BANG!!!!  This time, everyone laughed at me!  :P

And this morning, my whole body is aching!  :(  I just have to skip today’s yoga class, coz I am just too painful, all over.  :P

    Oh, we are member!! I’m another “cacat bola”!!!
    There’s no coordination among my limbs totally… that’s why I choose to learn yoga, which is slow enough for me to follow :)
