In General correcting my uke habits Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #41 New 09-14-2005 09:07 PM
Points to note:

I'm trying to remember not spin out of the "outside" throw when the partner doesn't take you down. Just walk straight out. I seem to have developed some bad uke habits! Also I have to work on being more grounded as uke particularly for shihonage where a nidan told me during a couple of practices with her that I was tending to lose balance a bit too easily sometimes.

Yesterday's practice was intense during the first class as the shodan lady I partnered has the fastest reflexes. Ikkyo ura her usually means I don't move into position fast enough. I feel like sometimes I'm not tenkan-ing close enough to her and am relying too much on arm strength as opposed to strength coming from body movement...once in a while I get it right then it's great but the rest of the time, I'm trying hard to just get into the right position in time. I noticed I had the same problem with simple tenkan exercises. I can't seem to move to her side fast enough.

We also did 2 attackers against 1 and I definitely have a tendency to run away . Sensei came around to tell me I was running around too much. I think practising close quarters will help me prevent that a bit as I think our initial spacing was too wide. Lots of room to run .
