In General Sticky hand or elbow and other weirdness Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #5 New 05-22-2008 09:02 PM
Something weird happened yesterday. I was training with a guy that's been training for only a couple of months. The technique was shomen uchi chudan irime nage and I was showing him how to break balance by pushing the elbow while pulling the shoulder.

The weird thing is that my right hand was just lightly touching the side of his elbow and it quickly became apparent that his elbow was stuck to my hand. Now I didn't feel anything, but he did he was like "Wow! That's weird, how do you do that?" and seemed to be quite shocked and suprised. I'm like "No idea."
In fact I only became aware that something weird was happening when he mentioned it at which point it did seem to be a bit odd that I could move him with a perfectly flat hand.

This is the second weird thing in the space of a week. Last week we were doing shomen uchi ikkyo and while doing ura I felt incredibly grounded I could feel something, running from my belly down through my legs and into the ground and to be honest I felt like I was stuck to the mat as I was making tenkan.
