    Default Who have you "punched in" for?

    Last night I had the rare opportunity to "uke" for the senior instructor, 6th Dan, in Kara-Ho Kempo (Besides Grandmaster Kuoha) and it was simply awesome! Although I am feeling it today... Oddly, even though it hurts it feels good in a weird way, feeling techniques I have only heard about---

    So who have you folks "punched in" for? And what did you take away from the experience, other than maybe some black and blue-?

    Cheers everyone!

    The above is just my opinion.

    I have been lucky to get lumps form Joe Palanzo, Huk Planas, Frank Trejo, Doreen Cogliandro, and just about everyone I have a picture of in the gallery on my website. I ve learned that these advanced practioners do not have to put forth a big effort to inflict some incredible impact.
    Quality outweighs quantity every time.

    Heck, I really cannot remember them all since 1979. I just call it "getting thumped" as I am the "thumpee." I remember Russell Shores once telling me as we stepped out to do a demo, "Don't worry, YOU WON'T make me look bad." So as the uke, I could not mess up, if I did, it would just hurt mo' better.

    Bruce Juchnik Hanshi, it always feels very enlightening getting thrown around by him.
