It's a pretty small club, not overly competitive etc. so we didn't go too hard usually and so he might've thought we were soft.
I actually left there and am doing BJJ now.
But he kinda personified me when I was sixteen, except he was TKD and I was Chun, and I kinda want to smash myself when I was sixteen.

Man, the first time someone made me tap with that I got so pissed. I immediately told him he better show me a counter before he tried to use it again or I was gonna hate him forever. He showed me that ankle hook/knee push thing, I don't know what it's called but it works, or pushing it off & shrimping before he really gets you pinned down.
We get along now....

confession: I'm strangely good at tomoenage & uki waza, I had a new guy who was a bit bigger than me & loved man-handling people, he kept pushing me around... & I baited him into a tomoenage that I really kicked off so he was pretty airborne & for some reason I didn't let go of his lapel but apparently pulled it. I think I was trying to use him to get a superior position after the throw but he almost dislocated his shoulder when he hit.
I did feel bad. But the throw execution was bad ass. Happy for me, sorry for him.

During sport jujutsu 'grappling'
Me: singing child's songs
guy: are you always doing that?
Me: no, only when it's really easy.
TKO-ing someone with ushiro geri, on the spleen (I thought proudly) then saw him clutching his balls. Bad Moenstah

I'm usually pretty tame. The most I've done is armbarring a complete newbie without knowing he was so green he didn't know what tapping was.
Give me a few months, I'll rack you guys some assholeness.

7. Lined up my fight team and knocked them all out for not listening to me (Took 3 minutes for the entire team)
Good as the story for this was, I originally imagined Omega walking down the line, telling each person in turn why they were stupid, and then cold-cocking them.

Wow! The worst I've done is to keep rapping the knuckles on a guy who claimed his years of fencing outclassed everything Guro was teaching in class. He'd swing,I'd counter & whack his lead hand. Guy never came back......

One thing that really annoys me is when people have conversations while training. As I've explained, I'm the only one who gets to talk during training unless they have a question. The kids class is really bad about that, wandering around the tatami blah blah blahing about nothing when they are supposed to be doing Judo.
We had a neighboor club over for a joint training session two weeks ago, and everybody is talking, like it's some kind of sewing circle, not a serious training session, which is what it was supposed to be (all explained beforehand). I don't manhandle kids, so my "mean sensei" voice had to do for them.
I was doing randori with a very competitive female sankyu, weighs all of -48 kg. She is tough, ex military, and was there to randori with me and my senior class students. So we did randori. Except she kept talking, making comments, etc. So our third round, the kids all start talking, I stop the whole session, and use my mean sensei voice to basically tell everyone to shut up and train.
So miss sankyu and I go at it again, and she is talking. So I go off on her and tell her to STFU and train, then I start singing "blah blah blah blah, some people want to talk not train", blah, blah blah, literally, then I footsweep her so fast her eyeballs nearly pop out of her head and end up in juji gatame. Then did the same thing again, and again, and again and again, for a long time. All in front of her sensei.
Did not hurt her, but she did STFU finally.

That's what my sensei would say to me in the kyu grades. I now use it myself. I later learned that that was what our Founder used to say.
Now when training with a higher Dan Grade, he often says to me "Come on! Stop Talking! You should be Training!".
I think the return of my poor habit is 'cos when I was training with someone else, they often starting talking. I used to be puzzled why my Gi was dry instead of drenched.
Training with the higher grade above. My Gi is now drenched again. So it should be;-)
