Re: Tap Tap Tap...

I remember very early in my career I was training with Bryan Bateman trying my best to execute a kote gaeshi standing pin when he said 'tap' to which I hit the back of his controlled hand, then 'tap, tap' - two hits tot he hand. This went on for a little while before a quite exasperated Bryan said 'look, I am laying on my hand, my feet are off the mat, I can not tap the mat so please listen when I say 'TAP!'' ...
