The Fat Karate-ka is a series of karate-related thoughts from a plus-size karate-ka and her best friend. We travel around going to tournaments and seminars, meeting some very cool people along the way.

If we say something you think is funny or thought provoking or put up a picture you love, tell other people about it!
