Re: Modern weapond

I, personally, am a practitioner & grandiose-master of chuckle fu, the ancient and deadly art of doing something so silly as to cause your opponents to fall to the ground laughing.
I have learned at the feet of such masters as John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, & Michael Palin.

Much wisdom can also be found in the teachings of Moe, Larry, & Curly!!

Me, too! But in my case it's often unintentional and embarrassing.

Now you know why all the Yudansha all wear dark coloured hakama -- to hide the yellow stains on their white gi pants.

In Venezuela people cut the cheese, too, as a method of radical aggression and/or defense. Not only that, there are many variants of funny odors in and out of the tatami. This doesn't happen often, but when it does, it's an equivalent to shock after earthquakes. No modern weapons here, just the old classical weapons like regular farts, bad breath, "violín" or "cebolla" (smelly armpits), and "trapos sucios" (dirty rags), and once in a while those irregular farts that actually rip the stratosphere. I went to a 3-day seminar once and Sunday's practice (last day) was an orgy of funny smells and no one could really be blamed for it, because the dinner-that-evolved-into-a-party the night before involved many caciques (indian chiefs, play of words, "cacique" is the well-known brand of rum here) and "ositos" (little bears, the polar bear being a recognized image for a beer brand here), coupled with an energizing soup called "mondongo" (which explains the unwanted gas the following day), not to mention that during the weekend there was water shortage in Caracas so nobody bathed or washed their gi's.
Anyway, training that Sunday was interesting with the added challenge of dealing with these ancient methods of physio-phsycological aggression and/or defense. The lady at the "arepera" near the seminar (arepera: 24 / 7 restaurants that sell corn-flour Venezuelan chewy biscuits filled with just about anything), could not believe her senses (eyes and specially nose) when a bunch of us stormed in her restaurant after rock n rolling on the tatami that day "oliendo a mono" and "pidiendo café pa' calmar las tripas." I leave that last phrase for you guys to translate in your free time.

Yours happily and truthfully in Caracas, Venezuela
Atentamente,

Justine

Re: Modern weapond

Dear Rock, never had the pleasure to visit Barbados yet, but did sing with my band in Bonaire. Although I did not have time to meet any dushi aiki fartful dudes, we did get an audience of Harley bikers emitting other types of gases since there was a Harley convention there that weekend (2 weekends before Hurricane Ivan) The motorcycles barely fit in the island, let me say. We were lucky, they all sang along with me as I belted out Bring Me to Life and No Woman No Cry... and I did not have to make funny aiki faces from any funny smells. It was good to hold a microphone again. (Practicing my grip for tanto training.)

Coleteando el tatami en Caracas...me despido por ahora atentamente,
Justine
