Thank you Uki’s

A special thank you to everyone that was in class this evening (3-29-10) for being an Uki. My journey in martial arts can not be made alone and I can not fully express in words my appreciation for all your help. There is certain to be other days in which you will be asked to sacrifice yourselves again. Le me assure you I appreciate your efforts and consider it an honor to Uki for each of you.


  1. I agree, it was a great learning experience. I was most impressed with how calm you were, then exploded, yet maintained good control. I’m also feeling a bit sore, but as always it was a great class.

  2. It was a pleasure to Uki for you tonight. You showed excellent control, and despite just a few heavy-handed strikes like the sidekick to my chest that stopped me in my tracks, your control was steady throughout and a great example of poise. Frankly, being an Uki for you is a learning experience. You taught us tonight how a good Tori should act when facing one Uki after another. The important thing is that we all walked away intact, no limps and only slightly bruised. But hey, a little bruising comes with the territory… It isn’t a dance class after all.
