And just so no one misinterprets my comment on the large student in Carter Sensei's class (oh, never
on this forum
), the student was not being obnoxious to me. While I consider myself of AVERAGE height
, at 110 pounds many of the larger males, in every dojo I've been to, have at one time or another realized they can pick me up and use me as a shield, or even a weapon
, often in randori. Even in the kindest, most gentle dojos, there seems to be something funny in doing this...and it is often a great 'E' ticket ride for me.
