Re: Ask sensei to demonstrate "at speed"?

There's an ex-brown belt karateka where I train, and he once attacked me full speed with a chudan tsuki. I admit I was caught completely of guard, but it was good to discover that I had developped a get-out-of-the-line-of-attack reflex combined with gently pushing the arm aside. I do not, however, want to know the worlds of pain I'd be in if I hadn't evaded that attack...
