Wind and Thunder!

How may of you out there have been in the embarrasing but also hilarious situation when maybe applying a fast and furious waza or taking ukemi that you have accidently blasted out a very audible explosion between the legs and have had the whole dojo in stitches and then have had everyone running away from you to escape the fallout!!

Re: Wind and Thunder!

Oh, come on now, Mr. Wagstaffe. We all know that there isn't a soul here who hasn't had that happen during a rank test, or at least some other moment when the dojo was silent and all eyes were on him or her.

Re: Wind and Thunder!

Even the examiners had a hard time containing themselves!!
and as I remember my sensei Mike Tracey 5th Dan B.A.A. saying "Do you feel better now Tony..... do you need to go anywhere?" with a big grin on his face!!

Re: Wind and Thunder!

I don't which is worse...the fact that they knew you or if you were a noob making a big first impression! I once read the top ten lies ever told in a gym in Muscle and Fitness magazine...and the #1 lie is 'no I didn't fart!'

Re: Wind and Thunder!

That would be so embarrasing
I would be nervous enough taking a grading, without "letting one rip". But if I did I would die

Re: Wind and Thunder!

Part of the point of wearing the hakama is it helps you muffle the sound.

That's why one should make the back-tie under the hakama into a big, fat knot right over the derriere!

Kane, sorry to have to tell you, but it's just a matter of time before this happens to you. Maybe you should just walk out into the middle of the dojo tomorrow and let one rip -- just to get it over with.

Also it helps trap the smell, Cito.

Re: Wind and Thunder!

Cady:

With all of the talk surrounding "internal power" why would you want to plug an important source of "internal power." I say "LET IT RIP!"

It's a combination between jet propulsion behind the technique and that extra "boom" that creates real distance between you and your attacker (that is of course unless the attacker is nasally challenged).

Re: Wind and Thunder!

Don't EVEN get me started on how thoroughly inconvenient it is for women that gi pants are white. Yet another reason I aspire to someday get to wear a hakama --- dark fabric coverage just in case!

Re: Wind and Thunder!

Keep 'em coming everyone!! enjoying and having a good laugh at the response!!
Thought this would cause a bit of a rumble and we are all subject to it..... look at the stories about the great Rev Onisaburo Deguchi..... seems he was a past master at it!!

Talking Re: Wind and Thunder!

We were doing breakfalls from the sitting position with the ken. On coming back to the seated position, we were supposed to cut with shomen uchi.
The sensei kept on saying: " I don't hear anything! What do you have in your hands, a bokken or a bistouri?... Tighten your muscles when rolling back! I wanna hear some noise!"
... it was then that it happened.
A loud prrroout!
The whole bunch of visitors started to laugh, along with some of the students. talk about embarassment!
Sensei saved the situation by saying:
"this is a natural behavior of the body so what are you laughing at? you've done this countless times so... now, let me hear some noise, some different noise, ok?"
And we went back to practice.

You know, it's just reverse kokyu! Most people let it go to waste though

Noise, you can cover up. But the tell-tale aroma of rarified methane...no such luck. The "con trail" is a dead giveaway.

Re: Wind and Thunder!

I consider them to be an effective combination of kiai and atemi.
