Re: Free Breakfalls and Frustration to Boot
Loads of thanks to you all, especially Bronson. In fact, during Wednesday's class, a senior student had us practice the first three steps of your method (Sensei wasn't teaching). I'm going to print this and practice it.
Sensei keeps telling me that the only thing that keeps me from "flying" - tha'ts what Ha´tian Aikidokas call breakfalling - is my fear. What I need is probably to get progressively accustomed to the idea of leaving dear earth for a second or two, and your routine is going to help. It might take time, but I'm not going to let a sixty four year old beat me on this!
