    Nun, if you train at Dan's old school(s) then all I can say is you just gave me a good laugh :)

    Are you only a white belt? If you're a higher rank, then suggest (politely) the idea of a once a week sparring only session, for those who want to throwdown. I did that at my school....but then again I was in charge and it was my idea :P

    I am the next rank up from white in Kaju, being forced to test for orange in May, but I was in Judo for several years and miss Randori style training.

    My boss opened a new dojo a while after he got his teaching black belt (there is a student belt first, then teaching, etc.)

    I haven't heard of Dan but I know there are a few different chains of Kaju schools down here. Mine is of the 'NAK' variety.

    never mind. For some reason I thought you were in Cali and didn't notice you were from Arizona. There's a few Kaju guys floating about though.

    dunno how it is with you guys, but whenever my class is over, i just ask my instructor "how about a round of sparring?"

    since mine is a small school, i just spar with him. or, i just get my ass kicked by him. i learn either way. if there is any student on that given day that is willing to spar (which is rare, at the hour i go the only students that could spar me are grown men that have to go to work the next day, so they spar very rarely, or guys near my age and maybe near my rank, but are scared cuz i have anywhere from 60 to 80 pounds on them).

    from time to time, my instructor will not be in the mood to spar with me, and tell me so. on other days, he will spar with me 3 and 4 times over the course of 2-3 hours. we normally go at it 'till i drop or until he gets tired of hitting me.

    Heh. The problem kind of fixed itself. Although he seems to worry too much about people getting hurt.

    He asked me why I was so quiet in practice lately and I told him I needed to hit things. We did some grappling sparring. At least that's a start. I still crave striking sparring though.

    Heh. The funny thing is, he came from the old mouth guard and cup style of kajukenbo where sparring happened every practice and they practiced on concrete.

    If you want to make omelettes, (good fighters) you have to be willing to break a few eggs. (have injuries)

    I don't think he wants to make omelettes. I think he wants us to sit in our carton and pretend we are omelettes.

    I am tired and my analogy probably sucks.

    Are all Kaju dudes surrealists?

    Not since Salvador Dalí. His 'Tuna Fishing' painting is really about a workout at the dojo while on acid.
