"NEKO-ASHI DACHI! Did you puke on the carpet AGAIN?"
You may or may not know that, in the style of karate that I take, neko-ashi dachi actually means "cat stance". After much extensive research (OK, I admit, actually after about 5 minutes of google searches) I discovered that "neko" is "cat" and "ashi" is "leg, foot, be sufficient, counter for pairs of footwear", whatever in the heck that means. (I knew already that "dachi" is stance) I love the irony of my dog actually being called "cat" all the time!
This is what a neko-ashi dachi looks like in real life:
But, really, I think it looks a whole lot better in this picture:
(And that picture, my friends, is what prompted this whole post!)
