In General High breakfalls and rolls (again) Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #150 New 11-23-2007 09:45 AM
Yippee! I'm getting slowly better at high falls. Our Friday instructor is moving the class along slowly but surely and just giving us the time and space to keep drilling till we begin to feel more at home with them. This time round we still did them slowly but distinctly faster than the nice soft low ones we did the last time. Am definitely feeling a little more comfortable about shihonage but of course we're still drilling at relatively slow speeds and not forcing uke too much.

Also figured that my left front roll which has a distinct tendency to be be crooked gets a bit better if I start out by bending closer to the ground to start with...maybe it just makes me turn my hips less. I suspect I unconciously turn my hips just before I roll which is what causes the problem.

I should have been clearer: I meant high falls when I said breakfalls. Thanks for your comment and I've corrected the original entry. And, Aikiwench, yes, I know what you mean.
