at my first day of class they gave me a white belt and uniform to put on and also a cup that i was supposed to put on my pp but i thought it was a face mask to protect my nose. after i got dressed i went into the class and started learning karate. all i could think about was hitting bobby swanson in the face and making him cry.
we started off learning to do kicks and punches. i was having a lot of fun until they told us we were going to be sparing with the other kids in the class. i got paired up with a 12 year old asian kid who looked like he had taken karate classes his entire life. i just tried to picture him as bobby swanson when we were sparing but i think i got a little to angry because i started crying and screaming at him trying to punch him. i think he got scared because he kicked me so hard in the face that i think i swallowed two of my teeth. he didnt stop there.
at first i was crying because i thought he was bobby swanson but then i started crying because i had just swallowed 2 teeth. he didnt care. he took his sparing glove off and punched me in the nose harder than 3 bobby swansons. of course it broke instantly and blood went flying all over the studio. my mom told me about this afterwards because i had already passed out at that point.
on the way home (or to the hospital i cant remember) i asked my mom why she didnt stop the big asian kid (parents could watch the entire class from behind glass). instead of answering she yelled at me for bleeding all over her volvo. i knew i should have worn my cup on my face.
