Re: Watching Them Fly

Joan,
I've seen a few broken collarbones and shoulder injuries in the dojo and other places, but I was so sure I could keep my students absolutely safe and none of those things would happen on my watch. However, it did. Another sad thing was this girl did not blame anyone but herself, said her dad had told her she was too big a klutz to take a class like this. If I could have had her an entire semester, I believe I could have taught her to own the mat. But she never came back.
I'm glad to hear you're all healed.
