I am a 6th kue, I know basic stuff and can figure out others but I am slow. Right now we are rellly trying perpare 2 of the dojo family to get there black belts, Infact they are going take the test in October. Welll , my delmia is that I know suck big time! I relly want to try and with some exsptions, I am eggero to lurn , thow they seem to to be tryed of teaching. I amit I am still quite scared of Koushes/high falls, mostly becaue I not sure hwo to do my part enoff to not get hurt, then there the whole trusting the other person. Other then that I will try, unless I have no idea how to do it then I just wnat to wantch so I can try to figure out what I am doing. I admit that lattly this happens , musch more then I like , it probly seem as if I am not relly perticpaating. Most of my dojo know that I have Asburgers, which means basicaly for me there is alot more to overcome and lot more that I notice that no one else seems bothered by. All, this is to say I am 6th kue but I , am still verry much a beginner, and dont even know how to be a good ukimi taker on much of the tecques. That bing siad we are doing alot of group ating of the 2 black belt caindits and I feel liek I am such a bad person to attack, half the time I barly know how to my side right , so what good am I to them? lattly I taken to just no pertacipating, sisays says they need my help, and that I need pratice my ukimie. Now I not trying to question him and I do as he says , but relly how am I helping them? I also feel bad because icant.
On another note I am also having truble with not wanting to grab the mate when doing a dubble slap role( your hands are suposed to go to the side one at a time, you kinda fall sideways , I think). I wonding has anyone else had this turble, any tricks? My dojo thinks I am ging to brack my wrist. I glade they look out for me , sometimes thow I liek jst let me do it wrong , becaue I know its worng but when I am trown , I get scaed by some and uncosly almost i do it.
I also wonder should I teel sisay any of this? Do you thinink a teacher would want to know or do I jsut kinda sound like I am conplaing. To wich I am sorry, I jsut want some advice and at lest here you dont have to read it. Thankyou for reading thow!
Hope your trying is goign wonderfull and that you all keep sharing your thoughts.
One last thign none Akido related , Rember to live each day as if its your last , becaue it might jsut be!
