Re: Funny things during class

We had a young student (around age 12) who was the designated "what if???" student. During any technique he had a what if question, usually some complex situation, involving several attackers, handcuffs, machine guns, etc..... His standard question for tanto tori was " What if it's a double edged knife?" sometimes adding " What if it has spikes on the handle like in the Stallone movie Cobra?" The best one of all came during a session of grappling. The Sensei was showing how to use the gi to off balance or choke or something like that when the young man asked " What if they're naked?" Myself being around 18-20 at the time, and a bit of a smart ass, replied " If you're getting attacked by naked people, you're in the wrong place!"
