Re: funny moments

I had been impressed and quite intimidated by Shibata sensei's demonstrations at Winter Camp. He'd finished demonstrating and I was working on nikyo with a partner when suddenly my partner's eyes got very big and he backed away from me. I turned around to find Shibata sensei at my elbow, holding out his wrist. What could I do but grab it?

He bent my wrist in nikyo fashion and then pressed it to his forehead, and very deliberately and inexorably drove me all the way into the mat with his head. "It's all nikyo," he said; we bowed to each other and he went off to look at someone else.

Once I got over the nerves I was giggling so hard....
