Re: Aiki Doh's

ok, I have an aikidoh to share. About a week ago, I was attending the kids class (as a warmup for the adult class), and sensei called me up to be uke to demonstrate a technique. It was a simple throw and roll technique, but on the third time, my foot caught in his hakama mid-roll, and sent my forehead into the mat. My head slipped underneath my body (being lubricated by my hair), my foot broke free of the hakama, and I flopped over in a summersault fashion. I was okay, with just a bruise on my forehead and upper back, and a slight headache. About half the class was laughing when I stood up. Sensei said that was the first time somebody has tripped over his hakama
