Re: Aiki Doh's

A fairly intense class began with the instructor telling us to make sure our attacks were fast, hard and realistic.

Jodan tsuki irimi nage, and I throw the first punch of the night, not full speed or full power because I knew fine well I would be unlucky and catch someone when they weren't watching, but a fast and powerful punch.

My partner blocked it and stepped in, but didn't block hard enough, and my fist and his blocking arm smacked him in the face.

The look of PURE UTTER GUILT on my face was enough to set everyone laughing. I couldn't apologise enough, but everyone but me saw the funny side.

End of class, the guilt was beginning to fade, and the instructor asked if everyone was okay. Cue a muttered "Everything but my face."
