After years of wanting to learn a martial art and with a very little understanding of Aikido, I finally started last month.
This blog is for me to look back and see how my journey began and to record my thoughts.

In General Breakthrough! Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Just a quick post as it's getting late here.
Tonight I had a breakthrough in my ukemi - I actually managed to do some without thudding my hip on the mat!
It's small fry in the grand scheme of things, but it's been really bothering me that I was struggling. I followed sensei's instructions, and then let my body do it's thing without too much thinking about it and ta-dah! Ukemi!
In fact during one technique I rolled and it felt very natural.

I'm very, very pleased with this little breakthrough, now all I need to do is learn to keep my balance properly during Shomen Uchi!
