    Getting to Know You, May 2018

    In college I was an Uke (attacker) for a Female Ju-Jitsu class. It was 6 weeks so they would not learn to fall to take the throws or they would not learn anything else. The instructor brought in men from a Judo class to take the falls. We would get instruction for free. When we went for our higher tests there was controversy about a woman teaching men power techniques. We had several men watching from the local organization when I had my test. I had trained hard for the test. So had our instructor. She had even learned the Japanese names for the throws. When the last part of the test before the open bout came she used the Japanese names instead of the English names that she normally used. I knew them so it was no trouble foe me to know what throw to use to a punch in the face from my opponent. Until the last one. She called out Deashi Harai (Advanced Foot Sweep). This is a throw where the two contestants are holding on to each other's arms. You get the other to step forward and as he is putting his weight on the forward foot but before it hits the ground you sweep it out from under him. This works in this instant, but when you punch you step first then strike. If you wait until the normal time you will try to sweep the leg with opponent's foot firmly planted. I thought fast and I anticipated when he would step forward. I blocked the pre punch and swept the foot for a perfect throw. Afterward my partner said when he heard her call out that throw he started sweating because he thought I might break his ankle if I tried to sweep a fully planted foot. I passed the test. In fact they wanted to pass me two grades but my time in belt was not long enough for the judges present to give me that belt.

    Grey Bones

    It is also Bones but the amount of plasticizer is changed. Normal Bones lots of plasticizer, middle for grey chronoscope and terrain and very little in weapons. That is my memory of what was said.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    That is still a bug. A bug in the cache, but still a bug. 37 years in computer support so I know bugs.

    Grey Bones

    Yes to all. They did the Chronoscope in Grey to differentiate it. They also used a stiffer version that was grey in weapons and terrain.

    Sorry, I do that for Call of Cthulhu not D&D. Right now I am playing Agatha Mallowan but also have Reacher (Lee Child's character) and Charles Sidel from Reich's Bones Books (his picture is Lt Buntz from Hill Street Blues)

    No, I will buy a mini and not paint it, or paint it badly. I am not intimidated by the quality of my paint job, just the work of painting.
