Re: Funny things during class

My wife and I were partnered for our first saburi class during which we practiced "taking" a bokken from uke.

The technique was finished with a kokyu-nage and nage stepping through with the bokken firmly in hand.

I compliantly fell to the mat after being thrown, letting go of the bokken in the process, only to land on my back, with the hilt of the bokken following through to thwack me square in the forehead!

Sensei rushed across to see if I was okay, and asked whether this variation was intended to disable uke after they had been disarmed.... as if
