Re: Ask sensei to demonstrate "at speed"?

I don't find anything challenging in his question...

He stated he is a beginner. My instructor is 7th dan. You want a 7th dan to throw a newbie full speed and full power? Heh, I don't think I said, *I* don't want him throwing *me* that way...

Another one of my seniors came from shotokan. His way of selecting a teacher then was to basically sucker punch them. I think he actually tried that twice...

Thick skull he has...
