Anyone ever say kam-sahmnida after bowing to the instructor? It occurred to me that we're drenching our doboks and inflicting all kinds of uncomfortable positions on ourselves that we leave class aching...and then we THANK them for it? Wow...way to beg for punishment! On a related tangent, anyone have any evil instructors that enforce corporal punishment? A beast of a teacher walked around with a shinai today while we were drilling blocks and strikes saying that anyone with an improper stance will get whacked. He's also known for kicking a student back if they kick him while breaking a board. He'll just whack you with a focus mitt or foam sword if you kick him during target practice.
