Re: Getting racked taking ukemi....

Maybe its just me, but if its an osae or pinning technique, first I'm kneeling, then kind of sliding into the mat. So my pelvis never really 'hits' the mat, I kind of merge with the mat. Even on vigourous techniques.

Then too, I wear briefs. I like no 'slangin in the pouch'...if you know what I mean...

There are those who go commando...personally, I don't recommend it.
