Re: how many times have you gotten hurt?

Sounds good - your students are lucky!
Thanks, But Im just the dogsbody assistant instructor

Absolutely agreed - everything from the limp lettuce leaf attack to just being plain off-course make it incredibly difficult to study Aikido effectively. As tori you either have to change the technique completely or modify it so much to prevent uke from injuring himself that it just doesn't work anymore. If only more uke realised just how dangerous they make things for themselves with poor attacks..
Again, Im totally down with this. What can you do though? Everytime I want to do an indepth striking class, theres no novices present

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