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.
Colleen -

Don't worry, or get upset about being used that way in randori. I've used people (literally) over twice your weight as weapons/shields in randori. When you can lock on sankyo, with someone who's 6-7 and 240, and brandish him as a giant bokken, it's amazing how much easier randori becomes. Isn't that right Magma?

...then again, that's just me.
