One-Handed Aikido Freak Out – OHS057

Some stories just show up and blossom in the funniest of places and at the oddest of times. This One Hand Speaks story happened just about five days ago as I type in this exact moment. It was a somewhat common interaction I often have about my one-handed life. Well… I guess it is not that common. But it is something that unfolds in my life from time to time.

What I found so odd and cool about the interaction is that it happened at my local supermarket while I was at an ATM machine getting some cash. This young adult/early teen-aged kid approached me and wanted to talk to me. He said he was a very young boy and he thought he tried my martial art school once. It was his reason why he did not stay as my student that led to a great moment and this story.  

Thanks for listening! I invite you to share this podcast, offer a comment or leave some feedback.
