    GTB can deal with it himself, I'm sure. He is not absent, just distant (from your perspective). Apart from that if he gets cheeky he know's I'll be on his case tomorrow night.

      Ignoring predictive text is acceptable, making mistakes is not!
      Sorry, I'm the product of the comprehensive system....

        "comprehensive (educational) system" there's an oxymoron if ever there was one.

          Where to start?

          So, attention to details then.

          Mortals' - not "mortal's". [no apstophe required here.............]
          Come on; attention to details!
          To ignore predictive text is acceptable, however, making mistakes is not.

          Sorry, I thought I would play the part of Grumperious T. Bilious in his absence
          GTB strikes again!

            The apostrophe after the S in mortals is correct. The sentence indicates it should be a possessive. He was comparing the worlds belonging to nanadans and that of mortals.

            The world of the nanadan really is different from mere mortals'.

              Come on guys, if you're going to criticise my grammar, make sure you understand the grammar yourself...

              Mortal (one)
              Mortals (more than one)
              Mortal's (belonging to one)
              Mortals' (belonging to more than one)

                I think you'll find it's 'mortalz' iniit? Keep it real.....

                      OK, I seem to be able to perform hakama sabaki when settling into seiza although I have to be careful to avoid the little flourish I'm inclined to add to the beginning and I do worry about the amount of noise I make even when 'scooping'. It seems to be the fear of feeling the hem anywhere on the sole of my foot that makes me panic and I have to overcome that. I'm working on the my issue with Inyoshintai this afternoon and will let you know how I do.

                        I'm sure that hakama sabaki is the least of your worries in "your" inyoshintai!

                        Seriously, though, you are only mentioning inyoshintai - are you having similar problems with shohatto? How about gyakate inyoshintai? Is the hakama sabaki giving you problems in any of the seitei kata? If you are only having problems with one or two kata then maybe you shouldn't fixate on the hakama sabaki too much. And just practice, practice, practice until you work out what works for you.

                          Yes, when I say Inyoshintai.....it's something vaguely similar! I don't have similar problems with any other kata except for, perhaps, ukenagashi when practised at the end of a class when my hakama has migrated southwards. I had a private practise session on Thursday and a more careful scoop helped although the amount of noise I make worries me a bit but lowering into seiza never seems to cause an issue-I seem to have that sorted. I tried sliding my foot back when going back into sonkyo halfway through Intoshintai and it seems to do the trick. I've just taken delivery of my Velcro so I'm going to try using that to keep my hakama in place.

                          Yes practise, practise and practise some more.......

                              Just as an aside, you may wish to take stock of (or have your sensei appraise you of) your posture during class. Excessive bending at the waist will cause your hakama to migrate in a southernly direction, especially if you are carrying extra weight. I had one gentleman greatly reduce the amount of hakama migration he was fighting with through improved and more upright posture.

                              Just a thought.

                                If the hakama is in contact with the sole of the foot prior to beginning/rising......... well, it will not be there as the foot moves into the next correct position. Q.E.D.
