Z is for Zen bu Kan Kempo

2018 #AtoZchallenge participation badge
For my A-Z challenge this year I'm taking a look at sports. Olympic ones, ancient ones, weird ones and some just non sporting sports.  I'm not athletic or even particularly fit but there are some sports I enjoy watching and in composing my posts I've come across many that I'd never heard of.  Join me in a sporting journey from the comfort of your couch (or wherever else you're reading this) and thanks for stopping by.

Unsurprisingly there are no Olympic sports starting with Z but once again martial arts have come to my rescue with Zen bu Kan Kempo which is a form of Karate.

I'm sure there are lots of interesting Z words just not relating to sport.  Although I did notice I'd overlooked Yak racing for yesterday's letter so maybe somewhere they race Zebras.  What do you think?

So that's the end of my A-Z journey through sports.  I hope you've found it interesting.  It's been tough getting all my posts out on time some days.  I wasn't as prepared as I'd hoped to be.  And I haven't been able to visit as many other participants as I'd like to but I'm thankful to all those who've dropped in on me and glad that I've completed the challenge.

I'll wear my survivor badge with pride!


  1. Racing zebras - now that would be an interesting sight :-) I read a book once set in southern Africa and one of the characters had a pet zebra, but I don't think she rode it.

    Congrats on surviving the challenge.

    1. Yep don't think they'd want to wear saddles lol.

  2. Zebra races... now there's a thought! Wendy, I applaud you and your A-Z challenge, which was well met! Congratulations!!

    1. Thanks Terri. I've appreciated your support.

  3. I have been away from blogland for a while and can't believe your challenge is at the end already! I will have to read back on some of your letters. Congratulations for finishing! More than I could manage....

  4. You made it all the way through - congratulations!!

  5. Congrats on making it to Z. I was late with a few posts last year (even as late as May for a couple of them!) so to be on Z at the last day is perfect in my book.
