Thank you all for your wishes and responses!
Believe it or not the actual cut happened not while I was practicing "my technique" but a few seconds later while I was holding my Tasman and I got distracted!
The idea of me using a "live" blade in my training WAS
to really get a feeling for the knife I use and to conquer my fear of using it! (I guess that backfired on me
And now I am scared as ****!!) I think it's time to invest in a trainer!
The cut was not too deep and there is no permanent damage that won't heal.
To my surprise the doctor in the ER did glue it instead of stitches because it is very visible spot on my arm and it won't leave an ugly scar he said!
Again thank you all for your support and have a good day!
