Re: Aiki Doh's

Does training too fast in jo saburi with your high ranked partner who hits you in the leg because you weren't experienced enough to block his attack (yes, he pulled it in time and I only had a bruise) ... and thereafter watching your partner get chew-out by sensei because he was training beyond his partner's ability count as a doh when you were the one to encourage your partner to proceed faster?

Fifteen years later I still feel bad about this. I only had a bruise for a few weeks. He was good enough to pull at the last minute when he realized my block was not in place. (Else I think I would have had a brokken leg) I have always felt bad that he got chewed out because - I - was the one that encouraged him to go faster and faster.
