In General shihonage breakfalls Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Just did my first shihonage high fall. Slowly of course. First time ever so I'm chuffed...my friday instructor had me come up as demo uke and he talked me through it then had the rest of the class do it since he said see, even the girls can do it which of course isn't fair on the guys since gender doesn't really make a difference in falls but it was obviously as a joke and meant to egg the guys on. And of course one of the guys then responded with, girls are lighter so they hit the ground less like heavy useless lumps . Have to say though that I'm still not taking enough of the impact with my arm so it's not that comfortable yet as too much reverberation is still going through my body and head. So it means I can't do too many of them in any one session.

The gradings were held too this last weekend and it's always fun watching other people being grading and just sitting on the sidelines completely unstressed.

Congrats! I know they're challenging, but very impressive-looking and well worth the effort. I took several for our dojo's demo video on our website. XD
