I am jinxed!!!

Went to training last night and once again had someone kick me in the head whilst I was being thrown! I seem to have a big red target painted on my skull. Just a headache this morning tho. Whew!!!
Michelle, I'm sorry, but it doesn't read like "jinxed" to an outside observer. Either your partners are consistently throwing you and/or everybody else "out of the lane" or your own ukemi is taking you at non-standard directions.

If the former, I suggest that there is a serious safety issue where you train.

If the latter, I suggest you confer with your sensei or a trusted sempai, have them watch you closely so they can suggest how to change your ukemi.

This is NOT normal and usual.
