Re: funny moments

you guys have some really bizarre conversations, you know?
this thread sort of isn't anymore much about funny moments, i think.
perhaps maybe it could be a sort of a good thing to get out the holy hand grenade....
run away! run away!

Re: funny moments

Last Monday a 2nd kyu girl (highest rank in the kids class) who was practicing with me & a smaller 4th kyu kid of about 9 or 10 years old (with whom I had to kneel to be able to pass above his ushiro ryokata-tori grab), lost her gi pants under her hakama. Luckily she wears a hakama! She told us and fixed her problem through those pocket-like holes in the hakama while the kid and I kept practicing. But it happened again and again, even when Sensei demonstrated a technique with her. We didn't notice of course but her face told everything. Really funny face that made me appreciate the value of hakama even more.

Re: funny moments

At our dojo, the sensei says 'yame' to stop/pauze an excercise so everyone goes back sitting in seiza, so he can show another excercise.

In our club, there is an older student with the same low voice like the teacher.
And when that person thinks he's already doing too long that same excercise, or he gets bored, he says "yame" out loudly himself.
Then, every student is going back to sit in seiza, and the real sensei is looking like: 'did I say anything?'.
Always fun to do ;-)

Re: funny moments

Not amusing - wonderful! Wish I could do that consistently on randori.

Re: funny moments

Some time ago I was practicing a tenkan technique with my sensei as uke.
He blocked my wrist with all his force in his arms and said: "you have to use your center, otherwise the technique does not work."
Then I just did the same technique but with my hips turned a little more to him... Actually nothing changed.
But he reduced the force in his arms so he didn't block my wrist anymore. Then he said: "see, now it works, you have to use your center".

I understand his point was that I had to use my center... but wether I was using that center or not... he just reduced force to let me do the technique. It didn't show me that the technique worked by using my center...

Re: funny moments

We were doing kokyu ho to finish of the lesson and I was playing around with tilting my pelvis so that the motion 'comes' from your centre. Anyway, when I tilted a bit too far the old fabric of my pants tore in two, my partner and I were looking at each other checking if it was only fabric or that something else made that noise from under my hips The pants are very breezy now, but alas unusable on the tatami
