Re: Aiki Doh's

Practicing ushiro ryote tori. Instructor was demonstrating a static technique with me as uke. I grabbed his hands and he requested a kiai. (An infrequent phenomenon in our organisation)

Instead of the polite basso hara grunt...

....what came forth was a long, primal, ear-shattering scream that blew half of the students off the mat, deafened both myself and the instructor and measured a healthy 2.1 on the Richter-scale at a nearby geological institute....

Most embarassing.
