    My apologies. . .
    I thought the mantis-monkey hand was open, yet curled inward toward the center, thus allowing those kinds of blocking sequences .

    No, I led with the fingers to allow for a hook if I needed it. I didn't need it. The block was sucessful though, I didn't get kicked.

    Let me see... I've dislocated fingers in Aikido, JJJ, Judo, Escrima, skiing, table tennis and dancing to the Beastie Boys.

    And I wonder why I have arthritis in my fingers....

    Your finger isn't supposed to be in your nose when you get hit!

    Really? try 1/2 a packet of knox gelatin dissolved into your morning drink (coffee, tea, oj). It works wonders.

    Over enthusiastic return meets heavy table. Finger loses.

    Ouch! I've come across one or two painful collisions with table tennis tables before - but dislocated fingers are a new one on me! Can we include a request for a table tennis table when / if I make it to a throwdown?
