I've never really done a proper randori exercise and yesterday was the first time. It was interesting. I realised that I don't ukemi safely enough (yes, sensei was issuing corrections from the sideline ) and tend to get up towards the centre when I should be rolling myself outwards. And when I'm the nage, it's awfully hard sometimes to know whom to take down first when more than one comes at you at any one time. I think i definitely made the wrong decision or placed myself wrong twice as I found the second uke was basically already upon me by the time I took down the first. Usually the third was somewhere else on the mat so I didn't have to worry about all three at the same time but if I can't handle two I'm thinking gee...it doesn't look very hopeful for three does it?

I always knew it was difficult from watching the yudansha but now that I'm up there myself, I know it from experience. Ah...well, practice and more practice I guess!
