    Sebone sensei

    I'll start. I've been training lately with a new sensei. He's really strict. He lives in the dojo. He's always waiting for me when I get to training. He's humble. He's got "kihaku" in spades, in fact he never shies from any attack. He's a little round shouldered and not very muscley (that's because he doesn't know the meaning of the word "cross-training", actually he doesn't know many words at all), but he has amazingly straight posture. Just looking at him makes me think "ippon, ippon, ippon." He doesn't care for flashy RBSO bogu. And all his teaching is exemplary: he never bangs on about this-and-that. If you're not doing it, it's not happening.

    I'm really starting to admire him. In some ways I hope I become more like him. But then again I do like my creature comforts (like living indoors, eating, sleeping...)

      Bwahahahahahahahaha!

      Indeed you're right. That sensei is always there, always waiting rain, hail or shine. It's not happening unless you do something.

      That sensei has taught me many things and continues to do so...maai, kihon, semete-men, sayumen etc. The sound of a good men cut is tremendously satisfying.

                  Wonderful Dojo you got there. Nice shiny wooden floor. You guys are really priviledged with such a Dojo. Could you enlighten me what you are doing with the tenegui on your lap and your hands in front of you? Just curious.

                    What are they doing with their hands?
                    praying? in the dojo?
                    I've never seen that done before.

                      What's hilarious is that this started out as a joke post... possibly as a satire of "the pic thread" or the "post pictures of your bogu" thread but people are starting to actually post legit pictures of their sensei!

                      I'm not going to out of respect for my sensei....

                      on second thought okay I will...



                      Here he's teaching me the value of dairy in my diet.
                      he reads romance novels and he's often late to practice.

                          Miyaoka-sensei, at our 20th anniversary party in 2001. Here's an older photo of him with Haga-sensei when he visited us a few years ago.
