Karateka or Gymnasts? Has a similar situation happened to someone? My club was putting on a demonstration for out local fair. We demonstrated kicks, other basics, kata and some breaking. After the demo was completed, our sensei allowed us to wear our gis around the fair. One of the venders upon noticing my uniform asked what "crazy stuff" I could do. I responded with confusion, and he clarified his request: he wished to see "some crazy ass flips, or something" When I displayed to him that the only thing similar to "crazy flips" I could do was a spinning jumping crescent kick, he tried to shame me for not being a REAL martial artist. Why am I (according to the public) supposed to be able to flip around like a gymnist and disrespected when I can't? Has anyone else experienced this in any way?
