Ode to Mitsugi Saotome Sensei

There once was a Sensei Saotome
Whose kotegaeshi always would throw me
With such strong ki that
I would splat on the mat,
Now my face is so flat you won't know me.

Once grabbing Saotome's wrist,
Katatedori controls not his fist.
His radius and ulna slightly crossed;
My sure grip was entirely lost.
I don't remember the flight, but you get the gist.
