Re: Getting racked taking ukemi....

Um, is it your hanmi/ stance you are in? If your partner keeps giving you a "glancing blow", then they are perhaps showing you are open, which, as a woman, I can only imagine the pain.
You don't want your legs spread open you should be going down on your inside knee to protect "the spot that really counts."
