Re: Shihonage Ukemi

Rabih - What kind of ukemi. I strongly advocate that rolls go over lats/shoulder blade/small of back, rather than shoulder joint and hip joint.

If you mean taking a fall directly backwards, and folding in your shoulder blades to protect your spine? (I'm guessing here that this might be what you mean), don't think I'd like to do that.
