Re: Aiki Doh's
It's been a couple months so I can say this without wanting to dissolve through the floor: I smacked my partner in the face while demonstrating the kumijo six at my nidan test. This is after about three or four attempts to even remember what kumijo six was...I could rattle off a bunch of excuses but the truth of the matter is I just don't put as much time into my weapons training as I should. I also almost koshinaged my partner into the shomen.
Both my partner for the kumijos and I were testing. We both passed. Sensei was feeling merciful to me I guess (my partner was doing just fine).
And let's not forget the numerous times I've arrived for class missing a piece of my gi. Usually the pants, though sometimes the belt. D'oh!
