Worked on ukemi a lot last night. Lan Sensei was heading up the class for Riggs Sensei. 4th kyu, non-kyu and me (2nd kyu) were there.
Concentrated a lot on setting up our body position for high falls. It just seems very intimdating to me to go over on a high fall for some reason. Being tall, taking falls isn't exactlly my most favorite thing to do. As disorienting as it is, getting up right away just isn't coming for me either.
