In General Front Ukemi Update Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #35 New 08-22-2005 03:34 PM
I was just perusing some of my older entries, and there's lots of places where I talk about my front ukemi and I thought I'd throw in a quick update. I think I can finally consider my rolls to be at the low end of the "good" grade. I pretty much don't think about them too much any more other than I always look forward to techniques where I get to do them now. I used to be terrified of front ukemi and now they're great fun!

My right side is still my "bad" side, but it's about 90% as good as my left and I don't really think too much about it any more. Every once and a while my head will touch the mat during a roll, but that's becoming more rare.

The point of this entry isn't to brag. I think it's more like, if I can learn to do front ukemi, then ANYONE can!

Does anyone else get disgusted (not really) by beginners who start off doing excellent front ukemi? I guess some people are just naturally better at it.

he he! yes although my problem is more with backwards ukimi and projections... I get most upset when see people doing great Ukemi within weeks when I STILL land like a sack of spuds. Ah well, keep on praticing. No fear of me getting ideas above my station!
