I think many of you will appreciate this take off from Meghan Trainor’s song “All About That Bass”. We thank Sherman Dorn from our Quest Network for penning this!

Your daily earworm, for my friends in To-Shin Do…
All About That Base
Tune: “All About That Bass” (Meghan Trainor/Kevin Kadish)
Because you know it’s all about that base,
‘Bout that base, don’t stick your butt out
It’s all ’bout that base, ’bout that base, don’t stick your butt out
It’s all ’bout that base, ’bout that base, don’t stick your butt out
It’s all ’bout that base, ’bout that base
Yeah it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no lineman.
Got ninja physics down like Richard Feynman
Got nimitsu that all the goons chase
and all the right bones in all the right places
I see those MMAs working that showy kick
We know their balance shifts with just a little flick
With your knees sinking down most punches you’ll stop
If your structure is aligned from the bottom to the top.
Yeah, my sensei she told me don’t worry about your size
Focus on basic technique and you will surprise
Keep your hands up and hips down and all bits that follow along
And keep to the one rule that follows next in this song.
Because you know it’s all about that base,
‘Bout that base, don’t stick your butt out
It’s all ’bout that base, ’bout that base, don’t stick your butt out
It’s all ’bout that base, ’bout that base, don’t stick your butt out
It’s all ’bout that base, ’bout that base
We’re bringing ninja back
Don’t let your fears give you any flack
You were disjointed when it all felt new but I’m here to tell you,
Keep your structure all aligned from the bottom to the top.
Our shihans, they say that our fear and our egos will lie.
Keep training on technique and then learn some subtle surprise.
Keep your hands up and hips down and kamae to follow along
And keep to the one rule that follows next in this song.
Because you know it’s all about that base,
‘Bout that base, don’t stick your butt out
It’s all ’bout that base, ’bout that base, don’t stick your butt out
It’s all ’bout that base, ’bout that base, don’t stick your butt out
It’s all ’bout that base, ’bout that base
