Re: Ukemi makes you (feel) tougher...

I don't know...I've had a few people tell me "oh, your ukemi is so good"...if it's soo good, how come my neck is such a mess!?!?

At the same time, I do in fact really enjoy taking falls. Go figure...

Most people tend to do Ukemi without proper roll and rolling right on the spine and neck, Does your neck hurts probably because you don't use your shoulder as the main impact point?

A good stance and posture reflects a proper state of mind
