I’ve discovered I don’t really like to hit people. That could be a problem. Patrick put on the body protector yesterday so we could practice our body shots (no – not those kind) and I have to say it felt wrong to punch him in the stomach.
That and I was worried about missing because I’m not super coordinated yet. Part of the problem is I can’t imagine what it feel like to be hit with that on. Or just hit in general. It looks like it hurts. Perhaps I’ll ask to try it on and get hit. That would solve two problems – knowing what it feels like to be hit and learning to accept that it is part of the sport.
Classic. Back when kids’ TV shows were realistic.
