In General Front Ukemi Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #27 New 02-18-2005 10:52 AM
Last night after practice, I did a bunch of front ukemi practice. Those rolls are the main thing keeping me from being confident about going to aikido class. I'm always worried that sensei is going to have us practice a technique with front ukemi. I think, though, finally, that I'm beginning to get the hang of it. The first roll I did last night was my old style barrel roll and I ended up landing pretty hard on my side. That hurts! I weigh too much to be doing that. I compensated and tried again. And again, and again and again. I didn't land on my side like that again, and according to Lindsay (now 5th kyu) I was doing pretty good. At least greatly improved.

As with all things in Aikido, I think if I can just do front ukemi another thousand ten thousand times, I'll be awesome!
