Re: Flip Me Silly

Also not sure how hundreds of gratuitious landings is going to help me achieve my goals of learning efficient body structure for achieving connection and kuzushi.

But big picture, I really think the 100's of throw "game" at the end of training is an old, old fashioned way of training. I've seen lots of injuries when this goes on, including too myself, people get tired and you keep pushing them that bit more.....then....oh dear, he didn't fall that well did he?

Primitive. Yes do some throws, yes get them tired, but judge it so that the person is just tired enough to get a work out, but still fully in control of their fall, then stop, and give them a good rest.

A lot of bad injuries in sport come about when people are tired, there is a reason why people drown when they are in the water a long time, they get tired and they can't swim any more. Same basic idea.

I've done that kind of training, though probably not to the extreme described up above. It does teach important lessons. What does "moving from center" actually mean? How does it feel to throw without added effort? I don't think it's necessarily the best or only way to teach those lessons, but I wouldn't call it gratuitous.

Don't eat just before training. It's a rule I have followed since I started. Otherwise, just pace yourself. You might not be able to keep up at first, but that's alright. You will get there.
It's ok to eat just before training but just a light meal I ate quite heavily just before training before and regretted it. Firstly, there is a possibility of vomitting. Secondly, eating heavily drains more energy because your body is using more energy to digest your food leaving you exhausted.
I have personally experienced all this before.

I've tried "How may falls can I take in one minute", but that was for fun and we don't make our beginners do it...
