howdy

I'm fairly sure I introduced myself last fall when I began lurking here, but just in case, since I'm going to make what might be my first real post, Hi! I train in an ASU dojo in Richmond, where I began last August and currently hold a rokkyu. Still pretty much the newbie, but just beginning to deal with being a semi-sempai, if you will; our mat is weighted heavily toward the mid-kyu range in most classes, and we have a beginners program that has created a fairly steady stream of totally new folks who look to me for help when we train together...

How many polite ways are there to say "Look, I don't know this stuff much better than you do, so let's just see what we can come up with"?

Anyway, see y'all around the forums and perhaps on the mat sometime!

Cheers,

Jim

I'd say, "onegaishimasu" is a good start...

Have that put on a patch and sew it to your gi

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."

I was thinking maybe a tattoo... But where do you put it so it's usefully visible? If I go for the wrist, then it's only really good for katate tori attackers. Back of the neck would be useful for ushiro but not much else. Anywhere under the gi is obviously useless. Forehead is great for shomenuchi and for general visibilty, but might be a little more prominent that I'd like...

Always good to have something important to ponder ;-)
