Re: Koshinage Ukemi

Yep. First forward breakfall I took was by a very precise first kyu who did it smoothly, not hard but not slowly and it required nothing on my part besides allowing it to be. So no big deal!
Future attempts by others to "load me up" were awkward, scary and fifteen years later i STILL hate being loaded up like a sack of potatoes.
