In Training Truble with conmunication... Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #2 New 06-16-2009 12:14 AM
So... For last few class when we do rolls I have been watching. Now this seems and undstandably so ,like I am not doing what sinsis has siad to do wich is do rolls. However, I have a delmea...and it goses like this. I only know conplntly how to do a forward roll. I knida know how to do a slaping one , but only form the grond not standing and everyone else dose it standing. I used to have a simaler problem with the forward roll and finaly after watching I figrued out how to do that one. So, since they are tryed of explaning or have not explaned how to do the roles I am watching to figure it out. Also,I am trying to figure out what the other rolls are and how many you are suposed to do and how to do the ones I am relly unfimaler with. Since they seem not to want to give me gadace... this is the only way I know how ... besicedes it is one of lurning...
My delma is thow a few of the higher rancking students ask why I am not doing them and if there was a reson.. I felt like explaning .... but could not think of how to say it in a way that did nto acusss them of anything nore seem like i was anyoned just after doing somany wrong ... i am kidna scared to jsut try, they then tell me i am gign to brack my neck or wrist.
Dose anyone have any advace on how I can ither telll them and sinsinsay that I am lurning through that way or better how do ask for how to do it and what am i asking rely?
Blesed be!

(My comment was too long again...) It's good to push yourself a little. Things will always be a little scary. But I did the opposite of what you are doing. I will try anything, without much regard for my safety. I was happily doing standing forward rolls in my 4th class... and then I injured my shoulder later in that same class. Now I'm out for almost 2 months (one already, and one more). So don't be too concerned with rushing things. You might make faster progress by going slowly.

If you don't feel safe doing a technique I think it's perfectly fine to just watch. Say "I don't feel like I know this well enough yet to do it without getting injured." Are you able to learn by watching? Or are you watching to avoid doing the rolls? If you are learning, that's great. If not, ask for the kind of help you need. Someone could work with you. Or maybe you just need time to practice on your own, without pressure to hurry, until you feel like you know it well enough.
