This evening we worked on doing things with flow. One of the hardest parts so far in my practice. Sensei helped with this by altering all of our timing. He instructed us to do the entire technique Kate Dori Ikkyo, in one out breath. It was amazing. I slowed down so much and realized that I was rushing everything. Once I realized how long I really had to do the technique in a single exhale, and how good it felt in that breath. I noticed after the third or fourth time as Nage, that I had more flow. It was wonderful…

We did rolling practice, I think it was the worst that I have done at it so far. It is probably the thing that I most need practice on, and the thing that I dread the most. I am afraid I am going to fall on my face or something. I know that when I don't think about it I do the best…I also do better when I am higher for my starts. Anyway Don and I were in the same lane, he seems to levitate for a while then gently roll on the mat. Strange, seems so very far away from my being afraid of falling on my face.

Thanks Guy! Now this is the very reason I like reading these journals. Often I find exercises that will improve my techniques. I'm going to try that exhale exersise because I too am struggling with basic flow of technique. Kelly
