“DAre DA?!”

Filed under: Aikido — kadiphd @ 9:51 am


John Presley Am I the only one who doesn’t understand what the hell Miyamoto sensei is saying? You’d think that over 13 years of studying Japanese and nearly eight years of living in this country would make it possible for me to understand ANYONE. But Nooooo, not Miyamoto sensei. I’m pretty sure he said something nice to me on my way out the door, but I have no idea what he said. Sheesh.

All you have to know is “DO YOU LIKE AIKIDO????” and “Tak-takatak-takatak-takatak” (the sound of empty, redundant, meaningless practice.

According to Doshu, you also have to know “DAre DA?!” John B. and I are officially being referred to as “So no Ichi,” and “So no Ni”. Or as sensei put it last night at the Bonenkai, “Exampuru Uon! and Exampuru Tsu-!”

Don’t feel bad. Think about the amount of time you’ve studied English, and the number of native English-speaking people you’ve met in Japan that you haven’t been able to full comprehend? 🙂 [That’s how I rationalize my bad Japanese anyways :P~~~]
