Re: Beginners with delusions of grandeur...

Whilst practicing a Sankyo variation (slow time, because I have a REAL problem getting this), with a beginner, I was, as usual struggling slightly with the technique, also the stop/start and trying not to hurt uke didn't help the flow ot the technique, but i had control and thinkgs were going well. She turned round and said "I bet i could have hit you by now." Does anyone else get this, when a beginner doesn't realise that you would actually have piled their face into the mat if it was being done realistically, and that training slowly to perfect technique ISN'T the same as incompetance. Just wish that her ukemi was good enough so I could show a full speed sankyo, then ask her to pick out weak spots.
