Re: Problems with Ukemi

Hi Carlos!

Yeah, it's tough doing ukemi when you're tall! As Jun said, you should speak with the instructor about the problem. Have you done ukemi from sitting position? That helps alot in getting your arms and legs and head and stuff in the right position during the fall, and you don't have the height to worry about (thus, no psychological barrier). Don't push it, if you're hurting, you should take it easy
