Anyone else besides me ever hit yourself with some part of your uke? Like the uke's elbow to the face during ikkyo?
Close. When I followed Larry Bieri Sensei to a seminar he taught in Cincinnati, I was working with one of the senseis on Irimi nage and I kept brushing his knee when I took ukemi. Anyone who has seen that old photo of O Sensei doing a "bone crushing" version of Irimi nage knows the implications of that, but I don't think that's what Larry Sensei wanted us to work on!
