In General The Ugly Parent Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #197 New 01-19-2009 09:31 AM
Today was a great class particularly the second class. I had one of the really good women partner me and she was forcing me to make my sankyos more effective by grabbing me harder than usual and supplying me with some very effective but helpful resistance.

My first class was somewhat marred by my having a little tiff with an ugly Singaporean parent just beforehand. He got my goat this time not just for his teenage daughter's behaviour but for saying that one of the senior aikido instructors was "unfit to teach" in the dojo. And he repeated that three times. And expected me to agree with him. Needless to say I wasn't about to do that so I pointed out that if he really thought that, he'd remove his daughter from the dojo.

I already told the mother off on another occasion when she said her daughter was entitled to attend class but not have to lay mats because they paid "adult fees what"....ah, what people think money can buy and what it really can't.

I really must be getting old...this whole younger generation is entirely spoiled thing is a clear sign of age
