Re: Funny things during class

At a recent seminar, one of the two seminar sensei was showing how gentle the lead into iriminage can be by using the hair on top of uke's head to pull him through the throw. Many gasps from the audience, but the people taking ukemi seemed happy enough with it. Then he called up another uke, discovered he was bald on top, and actually sent him back (accompanied by gales of laughter) because the hair-waza just wasn't going to work.
