One Throw Was Too Much

I signed up for a martial arts class for the purpose of learning self defense. I was really getting into the class and was improving quickly. One day in class, the students were practicing moves with a partner. While practicing a throw move, I threw my opponent my arm, but I pulled a muscle while doing it. I couldn’t do anything for the rest of the class because I was in pain, so I just went home. I looked through a list of Pleasanton chiropractors and found one that I could go to for treatment.

The chiropractor confirmed what I had already guessed about my back and told me not to do any martial arts moves for a while. I could still go to class, but I couldn’t do anything except watch. Seeing all of the other students have fun while performing their moves made me envious. It didn’t help that the days were going by as slowly as possible. I was itching to get back out on the mat and start doing my moves again, but I would have been in immense pain and I had done that. There was nothing I could do but just sit there and watch.

Once my back was feeling better, I went back to the class and started my moves again. I made my throws without injuring my back again, and we learned some new moves. There was a strong kick that the teacher taught us, and he wanted us to use it to break a wooden board. This was the first time we were working with wooden boards and I was scared that I would injure myself or at least get some splinters. I channeled my strength and hit the board, and it broke cleanly in two. I felt like an action movie star.
