Well, title says it all! Hello all!
I'm rather new to aikido, but I do like it. Perhaps 'like' isn't really the word to use. I'm more inspired by the philosophy behind aikido than anything else.
I just passed my 6th Kyu grading
however, I do have a little trouble with rolling.
My forward rolls seem to be very "hard", as in I impact the mat rather hard, with a loud sound and all. My seniors have been trying to help me but I haven't been improving much. I've been trying to roll as lightly as possible but I still impact the mat quite hard. Any tips?
