Worked with Mike for his test on Friday, over an hour and a half almost all of it being Uke. It was amazingly good workout. Woke on Saturday stiff as can be....
There was a lot to pick up in the hour and a half of Ukemi, there were a lot of places that I could feel my Ukemi making adjustments to keep me safe when the technique was not quite right, and some places that there were opening were aparent to me. (Since the test is for fourth Kyu there is no need to point them out, but I could still see them! Wow!!!!)
