ステップアップ-STEP UP・イギリス人講師 Kim キム
Hi, my name is Kim. I'm from Lincoln in England. I studied Economics and Math at Manchester University and graduated in 2004. I moved to Japan for a new adventure. I love Sapporo because there is always something to do. In winter I can snowboard and in summer I can wakeboard, Sapporo has the perfect climate! When I'm not doing sports I like to study Japanese and Japanese cooking, However I don't seem to be getting any better at either of them! So if you have any tips, let me know.

Is boxing a violent sport?
Recently Floyd Mayweather won what has been called the richest fight in boxing history. He won $100 million for defeating Conor McGregor. As many of you know, I also like to do boxing. After watching the fight, I had to ask myself if boxing is considered violent in modern society? The quick and simple answer is “Yes”, people punch and hurt their opponent. However when we think that boxing only exists as a sport with an equivalent opponent in a controlled environment, is it actually classed as violence? Both boxers are trying to test their own skill in a relatively safe environment and follow strict rules. I think boxing should be considered an art done by athletes who are abiding to the sports laws, with officials in place and the boxers themselves are trained to endure the physical requirements. Boxing when not a sport however, like outside in the streets is not controlled and therefore I would class that as violent. Compared to your average fighting video game, I don’t think boxing as sport is more violent but this just my two pennies worth!
Hey everyone! How are you enjoying the autumn? The weather is changing quite a lot. Recently I have become obsessed with the Starwars 7/11 figures. I have spent hours trying to get all of them (and probably way to much money!). In England we don’t have the same system, I mean, buying like a lucky dip ticket and hoping for the figure that you want. I was lucky enough to win the main figure (a large BB-8 figure) but what I really wanted was the 5 piece set of storm troopers. They were impossible to get!!!! I feel lucky to have all the figures that I got though. I wonder if anyone else gets obsessed with the convenience store goods lotteries? I guess it beats playing lotto 6 because every time you get a prize. What do you collect? Tell me next time.
Hello everyone! How are you all doing? The weather has gotten so cold recently. This week I have mostly been working on telling jokes. I am terrible at this. Some people are really good at setting up a joke and delivering it, I lack that skill (I start laughing half way into the joke). Shall I share my favourite joke this week? It is a written joke, so it should be easy to deliver!! Here we go…… “Do you know the name of the actor in the movie Forest Gump?” “T.hanks” hahahahahaha!!!! Do you get it? T.hanks is the same as Tom Hanks (T. Hanks) but it is also “Thanks”. I think this joke is amazing and has made me chuckle all week. Do you have good jokes? A student I used to teach who moved to warmer climates once told me a good joke. “Two fish were in a tank and one fish turned to the other and said “how do we drive this thing?”” Tank has two meanings, a fish tank, as in a bowl and an army tank which you drive. LOVE IT!
