Need help with koho kaiten! please....

Hello,
I have been doing Aikido for about a year, so I'm still kinda' new.
But I have a problem... I for some strange reason can't do koho kaiten on my right side. I've tryed doing koho on my left side, then make note of what I'm doing differently on each side. But I've come to realize that I have some how developed a fear of doing koho on my right side.... Does anyone have any pointers?

ありがとございました、

Tara

Re: Need help with koho kaiten! please....

Some of us do develop this sidedness problem at some point early in our training, you are NOT alone!
Be patient. The more you make it a big deal, the larger it will loom as an insurmountable barrier.
Others may offer specific advice on how to work through this. One thing I will say is, whenever you try it on the problem side, always start on the good side and end on the good side, so you start and finish feeling good about what you have done.

Down from the door where it began,
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many path and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
