Re: Aiki Doh's

Performing a few techniques in a mock grading in front of the entire class. All was going well, until I was getting up from a pin, and backing away from my training partner, my heel slipped into a gap between two mats and I did that wonderfully embarrassing stagger/fall backwards you do when you're going over, stepping as fast as possible while unbalanced, speeding your fall.

Managed to turn it into ushiro ukemi, which won me some points with the instructor, but certainly didn't make my face any less red.
