Once again, Paula, you have touched on exactly why i train. Haven't been able to acheive it more than maybe 7% of the time, but thats more than when i started!

As a kind of corrolary, i find that the less time i spend on the mat, taking ukemi, the more confrontational i become.So i guess that my year of regular training has had a measureable effect!
