Last night I held our weekly martial arts class, It was a particularly good class, the students where progressing fabulously and we had a disciplined concentration in the room. Everyone was focused on the task at hand. Then disaster struck! Simon lost his balance in a wrestling match, fell badly and broke his leg. All I heard was a scream followed by Simons voice, teeth clenched, saying: It’s broken call the ambulance. A quick glance at his leg confirmed it, his shin bending in an angle it just shouldn’t bend in. The ambulance came quickly and we whisked him to the hospital.
Simon is in hospital and will be in a cast for the next four months. Going over the accident and how it happend, during a move I make plenty of time every time I wrestle I have to conclude and Simon also does so with me, that it was indeed a freak accident.
