January 24, 2005, Bad Cop

At Saturday's children's class we had three new students. A girl and her little brother and another little boy. I was talking to one of the new parents whom I'd met a few years ago. He asked if I enjoyed helping with the class and I said, "Yeah, I get to be Bad Cop."

At the beginning of class when the children were lined up in seiza some of them were slouching and talking. I barked to sit up straight and keep quiet. I looked at the parent I'd been talking to and he mouthed, "Is that Bad Cop?" I smiled and nodded.

In adult class there were a lot of new people. One of them was a big muscled 6' 5" guy whose arms and legs just flopped around. I was working with him for tai sabaki. Of course, I didn't move him at all. I'm 5' 1". How does one adjust to someone soooo much taller than them? Training with him is going to be fun.

Yesterday at the grocery store I saw one of the little aikidoka from our children's class. It doesn't seem to matter how much I tell him to sit up, be quiet, keep your hands to yourself, hurry up, stop talking, pay attention, fix your gi…he's always so happy to see me.
