I noticed that there wasn't much humour in the last 100 days and thought that it would be good to continue this thread on the theme of stories of 'how someone more senior (in aiki terms)looked stupid'.
I've already mentioned this in another thread but...
Recently I was instructing how to do proper sankyo to a young female who has been training for about 15 weeks. At the same time some-one chipped in - 'can you do a counter-technique against that'. "You can do a counter against any technique I replied", hoping to illustrate with the sankyo the first student had put me in.
Then I had to add, "you can do a counter to any poor technique", as I was brought to the floor.
