In General Shodan Uke tomorrow Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #203 New 09-09-2005 11:36 PM
At the end of last week Julia asked me to uke for her Shodan test tomorrow. I will be sharing the duties with Rick and with Lilly, but I still have a lot to do. It makes me kind of nervous being an uke for someone that is going for their Shodan. Julia did pick me though, and she certainly has trained with me enough to know exactly what my Ukemi is like, and exactly what it is that I can and can't do.

We worked on both Tuesday and Thursday for over three hours each day on her test materials. She has it down, and even if there are slight bumps, I think that it is going to be an awesome test. I certainly hope that my part of it is. I will be doing Suwari Waza, Hanmi Handachi, and the last two sets of the variations, probably along with Ran dori, and some Jui Waza. I can tell you that it was definitely a tiring experience as Uke the times that we have been practicing all of the stuff on her test.

Wonder how you say good luck in Japanese?

It might be "Gambatte", according to my daughter who is teaching herself Japanese. Have fun taking shodan ukemi! Karen the blog slacker
