Jun,

Work on the basic principles of posture. Make sure metsuke, head, shoulders, hips, knees, and feet are in alignment. Move from the hara, knees, and feet in coordination.

Go slow, keep hands in front of you, and stay connected. Keep from using upper body strength, just move to the right places and let gravity do the work.

Oh yeah, and GO SLOW more often than not.

Later,
