Re: Funny things during class

Lately I asked sensei about the functional meaning of hakama and he told me that's just a tradition. But later I discovered that in reality it's a very powerful weapon in the hands (or should I say on the legs) of a skilled aikidoka. My partner trapped me with his hakama while I was thrown !!!
He tryed to convince me that was done accidentally! But all right, I know he was practicing some secret technique !
