We had one of those butterfly uke girls, who, after being promoted to 4th kyu, discovered that she could attack, that she could resist, and that she could take a fall. Everyone treated her very gently before, but now as she changed her attitude, her partners also treat her differently, taking her more seriously.
I loved your response, Eva. I wish I could learn more about how to attack and resist, and fall. I agree that it is my fault that others treat me very gently because I usually give them intimidated looks when I don't know how to fall, especially break falls. I'm working on putting a poker face on when practicing.
