Re: how many times have you gotten hurt?

Reckon I should continue arguing with all those instructors then
Hehe, well I wouldnt 'argue' perse, but I have pressed the issue once and It was just sort of bypassed and considered by this individual to be not too important, so I havent bothered since. Whenever I teach I generally do a half and half mix of ukemi/technique for the focus of the class. Im also trying to introduce some of Waite Sensei's softer ukemi too.

Alot of people also attack incorrectly (flaws, openings, lack of committment etc etc) and this is something I believe should really be focused upon...

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
