In General IriminageFest = Chin Burn Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Yes folks, you CAN have too much of a good thing.

Last night, after a couple of guys did another practice run-through of their upcoming Gokkyu tests, we did some Morotetori Iriminage. And Morotetori Iriminage. For the rest of the class.
Sensei figured that after last week's ShihonageFest it was time to move onto something else. Which is fine. Well, to an extent.

The underside of my chin was absolutely raw by the end of the night from the rough sleeves of my partners' dogis. Thankfully, it was just around the time that I figured I bloody well had enough of Iriminage, that Sensei ended class early. I guess in our dojo, when you start to smell blood, it's time to call it a night.

So now I'm starting to scab under my chin, which is great to show off to folks when you want to make them cringe (granted not as much of a shock to them as the gargantuan Yonkyo bruises I tend to get). But it's all good, because now it's healing, right?

Wrong! Tonight, we're running over another couple of guys' Gokkyu tests, and Sensei calls me up to be Uke for...Morotetori Iriminage!

Then when we started working on some techniques, what is it that we end up doing? Ryotetori Kokyuho. My poor chin...
