In Humor We're all beginners! Entry Tools Rate This Entry

The new question about hakama reminded me of an incident that happened a little over a year ago. A karate instructor joined our class.
A few of us were on the mat warming up when he comes out of the changing room and onto the mat. Where upon he states "Oh good, we're all beginners."

This produced a few smiles as it was obvious that he assumed that we had the same kind of coloured belt system as karate, or at least his karate school. I suppose no-one was immodest enough to challenge the idea of us all being beginners or maybe it was just too early on a saturday morning, but anyway.

So he asks my friend "How many classes have you had?" No doubt expecting an answer like six or seven. My friend frowns thoughtfully and says "Well, we've all been training about six years" his face was priceless "So what rank are you?" he asks "Oh, we're 2nd kyu" my friend replies. "Oh" he says, quite shocked "So you're all quite advanced students then?"

That's really cool. Being humble and showing respect is "tough enough" without being arrogant. Grow and warm regards.
