Re: Overly-aggressive instructor, anyone?

I don't think sadistic instuctors are a good thing either If someone is intentionally hurting people in class, you should either tell their superior, or if it's the instructor, tell the police/better business buearu

Re: Overly-aggressive instructor, anyone?

One person's sadist in another's Drill Sergeant.

We can always vote with our feet rather than wring our hands in loathing.

Tapping sends a message but under certain circumstance I will not release right away. Yet to cause any lasting effect or injury. In my case it tends to be a matter of gradual on - gradual off. Also the idea is to push slightly beyond comfort - some people are just too quick to slap.

And some people slap as if its part of the technique...

"Once I'm pinned I tap out...whether I need to or not. That's what happens in this part of the technique."

Of course I've been guilty of this when some senior instructors who shall remain nameless nail me with hijishime during demos.

They may be nameless, but knowing of the circles I believe you travel in, I think I have a clue Michael.

Ai symbol Re: Overly-aggressive instructor, anyone?

Claiming it is uke's fault is an obvious excuse from a guilty concience. A well learned aikidoka can adjust the technique to suit the resistance.Inappropriatly applied force is the mother of all signs of inexperience or lack of control. Just because a sensei has multiple dans, does not mean they posess wisdom with discipline. With knowledge comes power, the sense of absolute power or control in one's domain of authoriy can lead to a corruption of that authority.
