Teaching can be a wonderful experience. It exposes one to techniques and situations never before conceived. It also exposes one to the pure innocence of children.
I was one the mat last week and one of my junior students in my kids class came up to me and asked:
" Ummm...sensei.....what happens if I have to pass gas while on the mat?"
I grinned from ear to ear and said : Well Mark, you'll just have to excuse your self and go to the edge of the mat."
He looked up at me and said " Yeah....um....some moves make me toot."
Ah....just one of those rare moments of laughter and joy on the mat.
