Re: Anger on the mat
Well, if this guy has been causing a lot of injuries, and the sensei doesn't seem to really care that he does, I probably would have left. Most people in my dojo have a big smile on their face while practicing Aikido. I've never seen anyone get angry like that. And if you don't do the ukemi right for the sensei, they usually tell you what they are going to do, so you can adjust. Also, they usually don't call someone up who they know can't do the ukemi properly for the given tecnique. Have you ever tried having a talk with this guy? Or is he totally insane? If there is another Aikido dojo in the area, I would check it out. Just my thought.
