The first rule

Sully thinks I've advanced enough to actually start hitting something other than air in our training sessions. Intro... the punching-bag! What could be easier that to whack the heck out of a helpless target that can't hit back?

Wrong. Today's session was still all about technique, coordination, balance and timing. I learned the hard way, as usual. Throw a punch incorrectly and the impact rebounds, sending a shockwave back the way it came; that is, back through the knuckles and all the way up the arm. Ouch.

The first rule of Fight Club is "don't even join". At least, not till you've had more training.
