I pretty much defy someone to come up with a scarier thing than having a teenage white belt blind girl swinging a 52 inch oak pole within inches of your face.
Today I worked with Mytchi on a variation of tsukezue, the first kata of Seitei Jodo. She was doing good with her distancing, and after several repetitions hit the first offbalance point very well. We alternated working with my wooden jo and her aluminum cane that happens to be the same length. We need to work on her posture and grip, but she was doing good overall. I just had to stop and tell her to mash reset a couple of times because she was freaking me out too much.
I was having visions of my shiny, expensive implanted teeth scattered across the driveway.
