Re: When do you know you are good at ukemi?

Hi,

I always thought that I was good at ukemi, and now I've got a an additional indication: I dislocated my knee doing a bad irimi nage 10 days ago, and now it hurts and cannot bend. I don't even have to THINK about it during ukemi; no matter which ukemi it is I just land so that I get up with the good knee, don't hurt the bad one and most time still don't need a hand to get up.

So no seiza, no suwari waza, tai sabaki only with great caution, but ukemi works smoothly as usual.

Nice!

Best regards,

Eva
