Re: Full speed practice for 1st time....

Be careful out there. I stopped showing my friends what I was learning in class when I very nearly dropped my best friend on the back of his skull. He actually attacked with intent and conviction; I didn't have enough control to slow the technique down after it started. When I realized what was about to happen I just grabbed him and we fell in a heap on the dining room floor. He looked at me with scared shitless eyes and said "I was going to land right on my neck!"

I don't even want to imagine what could have happened if it would have carried through to completion. Now if anybody asks me to show them something I show them escapes from wrist grabs. If they want to see anything else they can take classes.


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
