Re: funny moments

One time during testing we had been in seiza for about 20 minutes when Sensei asked me to be Uke for the test candidate. Having "old" knees I wear both elastic knee supports and knee pads which do not contribute to good circulation especially in prolonged seiza.
As I got up I discovered that with no circulation, or feeling in my left leg it did would not support my body eight and I simply fell over backwards ( I like to think it was a good ushiro kamae). This "planned "move certainly broke the tension of the test and my dear friends
have not let me forget the incident.
