I’m sure we don’t have many Kobe Bryant Fans in class (Go Jazz!), but I did think this was interesting to learn that he takes martial arts. I’m surprised that more professional athletes don’t take martial arts. Their ability to read their opponents motion, fake them out, have quicker footwork and reflexes, and so forth could all be elevated. It’s hard to say but I’m sure it’s giving Kobe even more of an edge than he already had over and above his natural abilities and talents.
