Re: Aiki Doh's

My Aiki-Doh that had the whole dojo laughing...

It was my 3rd time on the mat since I started lessons, my first time practicing with "wooden sticks" and Sensei was teaching us a 13 move hit pattern. Well I am not that coordinated and my short term memory is not that great. Sensei started calling out numbers in Japanese ( I was still learning how to count at that point) and I thought he was calling out the specific number that coordinated with the specific move. I couldn't remember which move synched up with reach number and I was going allover crazy with my "wooden stick" trying to imitate the others. Sensei finally stopped class, looked at me and said "What are you doing?" When I finally explained to him what I was trying to do, he just burst out laughing and fell to the mat. We were just suppose to do one move, 10 times.. not ten moves one time.....

(silly silly me!)
