Waikiki Comedy Show, Karate Prevents a Fall from Wheelchair!
Holy moly I had so much fun last night! I went to the Waikiki Outrigger Hotel to see a Comedy Show with local comics Augie T. and Andy Bumatai. The comedy show was great! I also charged it transversing Waikiki. When I came across stairs, I just spun around and charge down backwards with some help from a friend. I found an escalator to try going down but it turned to be too narrow, not ADA haha. At the end of the night I caught the elevator to the upper level of the parking structure and wheelchair surfed, zig zagging down the drive to the car. On a flat portion of cement, a friend and I practiced moshing moves for the upcoming Deftones concert this week. We interlocked arms and did the Celtic Punk spin. It was badazz!!
Also it was very cool to make use of my Shotokan Karate skills today. While transferring out of car to chair and rolling away, I reached back behind me to shut the car door and I misjudged its weight. I lost my balance and went diving sideways over my tire, I was going down! But I was able to tighten my trunk a little and rely on reflexes to grab onto my chair and regain balance to avoid falling. Cobra…wait for it..Kai…Dojo!! 🙂 – Aloha
