Greetings fellow aikidoka...

So you are standing in class one day when a student comes up to you and says:

"Sensei, can we spar?"

Sensei: "Sure."

Student: " Grappling ok?"

Sensei: " Yep (I teach ground fighting so OF COURSE its ok)."

Student: " Gi chokes ok?"

Sensei: "If you like."

<at this point the sensei usually takes off his hakama...but not this time.>

As the sensei is just about to take off his hakama, the student rushes in, sweeps the sensei off his feet and land on top of the instructor.

That's what we call taking the initiative (wink). So, the sensei (on back) and senior student (in guard) are on the ground.

The student reaches down and grabs his sensei's gi for a front choke.

More initiative from the student (to the sensei's pride and dismay of course ;-)

The sensei still has his "damn skirt" on too.

Our hero looks like his is done in. (music..dramatic pause)

Then, the Sensei lifts his right foot/leg up to the students left side of head. The sensei then grabs the ever so stylish bell bottoms of his hakama, wraps the students head in it( known from this point as the Hakama Hood) and clamps it tight.

The sensei then pulls the student off with leg power while hooded and puts him into a key lock (Americana arm lock bjj).

An atemi is something that distracts (a strike or otherwise). The Hakama Hood could be seen as an atemi.

Do you have and funny stories about your gi or hakama?

Have a great day all...

Your storyteller on board..

One of our students keeps tripping on his newly attained hakama. It keeps sliding down no matter what we do to help. That never ceases to make me giggle. :)

Oh! A real story! Sorry, not here. :)

Someone I know told me something similar... his daughter tried to start a fight with him and was going at it tooth and nail. Mindful of legal ramifications of fighting back with her, he reached out and grabbed both ends of her jacket, jerked it partially overhead and spun her around and clamped his arms down around the whole bundle. The effect was basically one of putting a bag over her and trapping her arms in a straightjacket. He had her pinned there until she calmed down, no injuries to either party. She definitely was not expecting any such action from him, and he said she was fussing and fuming for awhile but I guess they ironed out their differences eventually. Although he has never taken aikido, I thought that was a pretty good example of aiki in action.

Baring very unusual circustances, the students will never get a gi choke from within the guard of someone who knows what they are doing. BJJ 101 ... position first, then submission (or in this case, use the hakama to control legs/hips, pass guard and then choke out the senior student)

Regards,

Paul

Ari
Sure.

A guy had me in backmount. Hooks in. Rolls me over so were both facing ceiling.

Inexblicably, he decides to go for a rear collar choke, instead of the usual rear naked.

Well, my lapel was pretty close to my jaw anyways, so I turn my head, take the lapel and stick it my mouth. Bite down on it with like a piece of grizzled meat.

Tadaa - no collar choke.

Worked so well, I've added that little move to my permanent repertoire ;-)

Mr. Paul Watt...

I agree with you on this point.

I don't think this situation will come up again but it was sure funny to do.

We laughed for a good 5 minutes afterwards.

The joys of aikido.

cheers!
