Re: Aiki Doh's

My boss had got it in his head to work me two doubles in a row again on weekends. 12 hour shifts on my feet and moving constantly with little break time tends to do a number on my knees and legs.

So Sunday nights class. I am asked up to help demonstrate a technique.This is a first for me and I was pretty happy to be asked. So after taking a fall from the technique I get back up..... totally loose my balance and collapse backward in a heap......not even a graceful fall and certainly not good ukemmi.....Simply had no power in my legs to prevent it. Jumped back up apologized and kept going.....

Next time I sure hope I at least control the fall and make it look good.
