So I've been spending the last online year mostly hanging out at Tribe.net and so all my journaling has been posted over there, its multi-dimensional and you should ALL go join right now, but until you do, I figgeed I oughta post some of my aiki-related stuff here as well. Here's one from a thread on magical experiences in & out of the dojo,from my tribe, budobabes:
I am 5'3". Sensei is 6'3". Today he was demonstrating iriminage with me and intread of running into his arm and getting thrown, I -completely accidentally and with no intent-ended up just strolling under his arm.
next thing I know I'm flat on my face and my fingertips are about to pop-Yonkyo!
The bruise has changed color twice today already!
