Splittig Gi’s Martial Arts | My Life 29 SEP 2010

Hey, I've even produced a comic on this topic before - told you it happens a fair bit to me! :P

I seem to be making a habit of this you know. Splitting gi’s (or dogis if you prefer) that is.

The latest ripped white training pants to add itself to my notorious list of shredded pants, joined the ranks at Monday night’s training session, where Gerhard and myself were going through the steps for Shisome, the newly renamed first kata under the Funakoshi International style, under the watchful eye of sensei Birgitt.

As I spun around from a nice and relaxed kamae stance into a more bowlegged back stance towards the end of the kata, there was the usual loud ripping noise I’ve become rather accustomed to, prompting an exclamation from sensei as to whose poor knees were giving out now. Shamefully I replied that for a change it wasn’t a body part disagreeing with the sudden movement, but rather my trusty old pants who had now had enough of the incessant abuse I dish out to it every Monday and Wednesday evening.

Come to think of it, it had tried to commit seppuku once before, but my mom jumped to the rescue with needle and thread. This time however there is no saving it, as it has now well and truly committed ritual suicide. (Though it will have to do for tonight’s training over a very white underpants until I can get to the shops on Saturday to try and find a replacement!)

Sigh, me and my ripped pants.

It’s becoming a signature thing I tell you! ;)

The House of C 009: Let Her Rip! The House of C 01 FEB 2010

This embarrassingly enough has happened to me before you know (not the g-string bit though). Just as class was about to get underway, still happily stretching in anticipation of a good bout of training, I squatted to loosen up my hears and was horrified to hear a loud ripping noise as I went down.

Needless to say, I had underestimated my dogi’s stretchiness and now had to contend with a rather large, gaping hole in my pants, underpants happily showing my bum cheek off to anyone who cared.

Still, the practice was good and I must say, it was certainly more airy training that way…

Doing the Splits My Life 24 APR 2008

Split PantsYup, yup, yup, yup. So, we haven’t quite joined up with the local gym here just yet, thanks in part to the rather financially tight month we’ve had with all those purchases we had to make for the house. However come payday and both of us will be rushing off in order to join up and get fit again! Of course, after Tuesday’s evenings rather in your face sign, I DO need to get my rear in gear ASAP!

So, Chantelle was on a late and I was busy passing the time by playing some PlayStation when it suddenly dawned upon me that I was in fact responsible for supper. No problem methinks, getting up and walking over to the TV cabinet to turn off the console.

*RIP*

Yup, as I squat down in front of the TV, there is this deafening ripping noise and lo and behold, my 10 year old favourite gym/jogging/DIY pants are no more.

Yup, yup, yup, yup. I NEED to get this rear in gear! :)
