Re: Have you ever had an aggressive challenger come into class?

Not aggressive but we had 5 young, strapping, seriously buff guys with varied and significant martial experience come through the door. Sensei used to teach the sciences at a TCM college and these guys were invited. The rest of us watched them stroll in and we groaned, in anticipation of a pissing contest with a group of young, strapping, seriously…

Not to worry this was not sensei’s first rodeo. The first half of the class was swari waza movement and stability drills. Tuckered any adventurism right out them, spent the rest of the night on tanto defense. A great time was had by all; two became dojo members.
