Re: To Slap the Ground or Not


Find a good judoka. Take some ukemi from shoulder throws. Please be careful!!!

Soft is great, but if you misalign your body during a good hard throw - you are going to hurt yourself. As Dan and Mike preach -- you got to feel this stuff.

So, try what you say under the conditions I suggest.


ps. - I helped my buddy learn koshi nage last night and took some classic breakfalls. felt great, and my spine feels more limber today for it. dk
