Ki Symbol Re: Aiki Doh's

the first time i met david shaner sensei i was rather nervous. We were all standing in our line as he was walking down the ranks talking about keeping one point with weight underside. As he got closer to me i started saying to myself "gotta keep onepoint....do good one point for sensei". i could see in the mirrors that he had stopped right behind me and was looking at me with a smile on his face.
"keep good onepoint for sensei...can't look bad". He just chuckled reached out with one hand laid it gently on my shoulder dropped the weight and i SLAMED on the mat.

he laughed and went on with the lesson.

not really embarrassing....more ironic......but still funny
