It goes down to familiarity, imho.





Man that is a blast from the past technique. An old instructor (boxing) of mine tied my right arm up for two months until I learned to use my left.

Thanks for jogging the old memory Bob. Great stuff!

Thanks, and you're welcome Ken!! After all, I'm old school too!!

My former sensei tied me to another student once so I couldn’t “run” during sparring. He tied us together with a belt’s length between us. He did it to a few others here and there too.

Thanks for jogging my memory. I hadn’t thought about that one in years

LOL!!

Yep, I've done that more times than I can remember. I've tied them to me!! Now, that gets their attention really quick...saucer eyes and all; and they can't run far, if at all.

Life has its little perks as the CI. I've told my students that one of the biggest reason that they are in my dojo is that they're my only source of entertainment, and I get bored really quick. I mean this in the most harmless way. After all, much of the drills that I've created definitely challenge and help them to reach their AHA moments, and that is the primary reasons, but, well, I do get bored.
