On Saturday all sensei's were out on seminar with Goto sensei and we were practicing with Dan (our nidan sempai). We did forward rolls and a small correction here - do not place the hand too forward, just next to your foot. In that case you keep your balance as long as you can and during throw minimize the time you are unbalanced.
Then we did some excercises to keep our balance while leaning backwards. Just stay one step in front of a wall, then curve your body back and touch the wall with your hands. Be sure to keep yourself balanced so you can walk along the wall. Then we tried to do back roll from that curved position.
Then we did 31 jo kata.
