Oh, he didn't really want to discuss it. He just wanted to see brown belts on the defense... didn't work though :-D

Re: brutal brown belts

Hrm . . . I think the best defense is a good offense.

Re: brutal brown belts

But if you're not there, does it actually happen?

Re: brutal brown belts

Would it be better:

1 - If you were there and it didn't happen?

2 - If you were there and it did happen?

3 - If you weren't there and it didn't happen?

4 - If you weren't there and it did happen?

Or does it really, actually matter?

Brutal Brown Belts? Or vengeful yudansha?



Best advice I can give: no get hit.

Re: brutal brown belts

Aye . . . even as a kid when Mr. Miyagi said it -- it seemed like the right idea . . .

Heh. I'm the brutal brown belt 'round these parts. I got hit by Sensei. I think he pretty much gave me the same advice. I don't know how my face kept ending up where his fist was....

I do feel with you. My Sensai kicked me in the head, while he was taking ukemi for a red belt...

Re: brutal brown belts

If you are consistently being hit in the head, then I have a question: Are your hands up or down when this happens?

I wouldn't say consistently. It's a case of two people being thrown to same place in space (or nearly the same) at the same time... strangely, if such accidents happen, there seems always to be some english involvement...

I don't think I said "consistently", if you were indeed addressing me. It was just one of those nights. Luckily, most of the time I get my head out of the way....

You sound a bit like one of my students about a year or so ago. Every time I'd make a mistake in a technique, he'd get hit in the face. It didn't have to be a big mistake, either.

Now, it's probably worth noting that he was a brown belt at the time.

And that he is one student who makes a point of trying to mess up my techniques on a regular basis. He keeps me on my toes. It's nice to have one student like that, but I'm glad it's just the one at the moment.

Re: brutal brown belts

Definitely just a general comment on my part, since one symptom I've observed of those that keep their hands down is that they're much more likely to atemi their partner's hands with their head/face (assuming someone actually wants to hit you) . . . :P

I got an object lesson in that this last weekend. I attended a seminar in Fresno and got whacked in the head - hard and intentionally - when I didn't protect myself.

I'd forgotten how tough that teacher is.
