Re: The Joy of Ukemi

Thank you for discussing the subject of ukemi. It really is challenging for me, dealing with exactly what you described at the beginning – much of what we are told seems to be at opposite ends of a spectrum. Of course it's not, really. We can be not in resistance, and also not just falling down. It's hard to find that right combination though! Something I'm continually working on, and probably will be forever. :-)
