How do you say Birthday in Judo?

My Judo club, the Bushido Kai Judo Club has a birthday tradition. It comes in two flavors.

One, if your a black belt you get to throw everyone in class once. Not bad eh?

However, if your not a black belt, and I certainly am not, you get thrown by everyone in class once. Trust me, it's much less fun.

Ok, I'm not being entirely honest, it's good clean fun. But when you are staring at a line of thirty some people you start to reconsider if this was such a good idea.

Well, I got through the birthday "celebration" intact. I was tired, sore and like a fool had not properly hydrated but I got through it.

Frankly, I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
