Things Jim Can Do: Martial Arts

My improv girls have challenged me to a list of things to do. I failed at speaking with a Jamaican accent; they said I kept slipping into Irish. Another challenge was to do martial arts. I've had a bit of training in Tadashi-do Karate, Go-Ju Ryu Karate, Fred Villari's Karate, Judo, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Ninpo Taijitsu, though I never got great at any of them. After our last improv show, in a place called "My Bar" (it's not my bar and it's not even my favourite bar, by a long shot) I did a little demonstration that satisfied the women. I don't know what move I'm doing in this image-- don't ask what the hell my right hand is doing bending back like that-- I have no idea...
