Re: An Experiment in Assessing my ukemi

Since Adam and I were picking up on the same issue, I will give you some examples: 0:50, 0:58, 1:58, and 2:24. There are probably some later ones, but I stopped the video because I have to get back to work. What you are doing is whacking the mat to break your fall. This is how I was originally taught to break fall, and it is much less comfortable and more draining than the way Adam is describing.
Thank you, Robin!
