Re: funny grading moments

During my sandan grading I was performing irimi nage on a 2nd kyu uke who wasn't moving fast enough into ukemi, so I shifted my top hand from her face to the side... and caught my little finger in the collar of her gi as I went through. I dislocated and fractured my finger - but I still laugh every time I thnk of the way I turned - still moving very quickly - to my Sensei, holding up my hand with finger pointing in the wrong direction, and saying "ow, ow ow!!".

Mind you, Sensei popped my joint back in, taped it up, and I graded for another hour...
