All the time, but the most recent one being:

On sunday I was at one of our organisations courses held by our head instructor. At dinner time I was given a breakaway (which is a chocolate covered biscuit bar, for those of you not au fait with them) and stashed it in my obi because I was waiting for some chips. 2 hours later and well into the afternoon session Im training with a friend and notice something yellow sticking out of the top of my hakama. I pull out a very mangled chocolate bar. I'd been thrown by sensei and everything, had trained with most of the senior instructors in the org. Oh imagine the situation had it flown out and hit sensei in the face in front of everyone. Doh!

My dojo had been without mats for so long that we had pretty much gotten used to training on thin commercial carpet on concrete. When we went to a workshop on Florida's other coast, I and another student found ourselves without room to work comfortably on the mat. So we moved over a few feet and started throwing each other around on the linoleum floor. The rest of the class looked at us as if we were from another planet. :drool: Robert and I just continued hitting the floor with a smile. :D

I had been impressed and quite intimidated by Shibata sensei's demonstrations at Winter Camp. He'd finished demonstrating and I was working on nikyo with a partner when suddenly my partner's eyes got very big and he backed away from me. I turned around to find Shibata sensei at my elbow, holding out his wrist. What could I do but grab it?

He bent my wrist in nikyo fashion and then pressed it to his forehead, and very deliberately and inexorably drove me all the way into the mat with his head. "It's all nikyo," he said; we bowed to each other and he went off to look at someone else.

Once I got over the nerves I was giggling so hard....

Shortly after I started, just sensei and myself in a squash court doing jo suburi with some vigour.

me: "If I let go of this I'll hit you in the back of the head."

sensei: "Don't let go."

What could I do after that? I had a white knuckle grip for the next hour! :hypno:

One time during testing we had been in seiza for about 20 minutes when Sensei asked me to be Uke for the test candidate. Having "old" knees I wear both elastic knee supports and knee pads which do not contribute to good circulation especially in prolonged seiza.
As I got up I discovered that with no circulation, or feeling in my left leg it did would not support my body eight and I simply fell over backwards ( I like to think it was a good ushiro kamae). This "planned "move certainly broke the tension of the test and my dear friends
have not let me forget the incident.

A student was taking ukemi for Hreha Sensei after said sensei had eaten a bit of chocolate or two. The tempo picked up. Uke was caught off guard and let out an explicative, "Oh sh*t!" halfway through the fall. As he stood up to see Sensei smiling, uke explained, "Um, that was my kiai, Sensei."

A few months ago I was taking my nidan test doing tanto dori. During one of the standing pins the tanto dropped on to my uke's head and made a nice bonking sound. Everyone started laughing. It was prett funny.

Nice posts everyone they are all very amusing. I started laughing out loud and I am at work and everyone turned and asked to share what I was laughing at so I showed them the thread. They all started laughing to.

Thanks for the entertainment from everyone here at Jobs West.

So you failed, because you "killed" uke?

Dirk ;)

killing uki isn't a fail in our organisation,

[spoiler]It just means you have used up one of your uki ration [/spoiler]

Re: funny moments
 
Yes Steve,
I know, Wite Rose teach a very special aikido.

But in fact I was not precise enough.

Killing uke is not really the problem, unless you run out of your uke ration ;).

But killing uke by accident means bad control, doesn't it?

Cheers Dirk

Not unless you start coming to class ;)

I dont like killing uke's, I'd rather just leave them shells of their former shelves. It's classier.

i was there monday, and noticed a distinct lack of mr simpson in the dojo? Hmmmmmmmmmmm ;)

Oh well, Excuse the fact that I was ill all weekend, including the friday night where I still took the time to turn up and teach a class. Well, the term class is a little misleading, I mean the two people who turned up! Because you all had better things to do. And forgive me the 4 classes I trained in last week and the blood that I ended up spilling in one of them. Because Im obviously lazy and never train!

I'd like to add that I wont be there tonight (due to having slept all day after work last night and the fact that I have to hand in two essays) so burn my hakama, hang up my gi, remove my name from the list of illustrius deshi. Nick Simpson is obviously dead.
