Psychology at the Karate School

Dreamed that I was a professor of Psychology, and I decided to train at a traditional (either Japanese or Okinawan) Karate school.  The teacher was a thin old man and was very tough.  Not only did he teach Karate, but I suspect that he’d been in more than his fair share of bar fights.

As the lessons progressed, both the students and the teacher became interested in my background in psychology.  Eventually, in collaboration with the teacher, I developed a psychology course for the Karate school.  Essentially, it was a course in the psychology of conflict.
