Hi everyone!I recently attempted morote-dori techniques and found it exceedingly difficult to execute even kokyunage when my uke grabbed on really really tight...even when my sister grabbed me tight i couldnt move!!! Same thingg happened for gyaku-hanmi catches...eeks this is quite scary...oh did i mention my ryotedori tenchinage- uke ctaches me, i tell him hold tight, and i cant move. And then i run to my sensei who effortlessly smacks me into the tatami...hard...he smiles and says the harder i catch the harder i fall...guys how do i relax soo much? I try to think of my hand as a towel and stuff, even moving with my one point and stuff but it doesnt work regularly...any tips?
I'd say smoke a big fat doobie right before class......
lol, in all seriousness, I try to get to class a few minutes early so that I can stretch and also, to mediadate a bit before class. Let all the days worries slide away before I start class.
