In General Broken toe...thankfully not mine. Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #60 New 05-21-2004 03:09 PM
Last night's class was going pretty well until Robert broke his toe during randori.

We've been working on brown belt (nikyu) test techniques in preparation for a test in June. The techniques are feeling pretty good, but I'll be taking advantage of the open mat sessions to work on them.

We're not quite sure how Rober broke his toe (or if it's broken, it may be dislocated). We were doing randori with Micah as nage and four of us as uke. None of us felt any hard collisions or anything that would explain the injury to Robert's toe. As soon as Robert realized he was injured, I got the ice pack and bound it to his foot with an Ace bandage. Shortly thereafter Micah drove Robert to the emergency room for an X-ray and treatment.

I'm a little perturbed because I've been urging Robert to get health insurance for a few months now, but he still doesn't have any. As a result, we've all offered to chip in a bit and help with his medical costs. I guess it's the right thing to do, but combined with the fact that we all agreed to chip in and help pay our most senior student's shodan test fee, the subsidizing other people's aikido practice is starting to bug me.

It' wouldn't bug me so much if I weren't already worried about paying for the instructors' seminar I'm attending next week, not to mention the test fee in June.

This hobby can be pretty expensive at times.
