Re: Aiki Doh's

I have had a similar experience with the Kiai from the wrong end...

kneeling, listening to my instructor explain ikkyo, feeling the increasing pressure of my passion-for-garlic induced read-end Kiai building and building...

The effort involved in not exploding was causing me to sweat and maintain an expression of extreme suffering and seriousness.

Unfortunately my instructor interpreted my unusual glowering for scepticism and took me to task... *sigh*

Most embarassing was allowing myself to be catapaulted into O-Sensei's kami in the middle of a large seminar...
