I was going along Tudor street in the city Bridgetown when i noticed this sign for a karate school. I passed it and continued but then I remembered that i was looking for a good karate school.At least one that taught some kind of grappling since I couldn't find any kind of Jiujitsu school here and I really want to learn grappling. Actually i know there are some Judo Schools but i couldn't find any of them.

I turned around and went into the building.There were two men talking at the front of the building.I just glanced at them and went on my merry way.

Upstairs I enquired about the karate classes. The young receptionist wanted to know if I would be interested in the gym class or if i was primarily interested in karate. As I was talking to her a man with red burning eyes and obvious anger came up the stairs and shouted to me "You don't speak?"

I understood then that he was one of the men at the door downstairs..he had bulging muscles and was plainly about 50 times bigger than I am.In Barbados you would call me bony.I turned to him and said "I am speaking now." This plainly angered him even more as he shouted to me."You want discipline and whats more you have an attitude."

All the while I was not really believing what was going on. Maybe I had just walked off the street to go to battle with this goliath.

So I said "are you going to kill me because I didn't speak to you?" he said "did you see me bring violence to you?"

I had had enough of this anyway and I ask the little sheila if he was in anyway associated with the club.She said that he was a black belt and......

I said thank you.Give her back the brochure outline the class cost and promptly left the place....He was actually standing in the middle of the door downstairs....i exited ,didn't tell him bye and I was on my way.

Remember....in Barbados some people may kill you if you don't speak.......well almost.
