marking my calendar as we speak. i'll have my kinesio tape handy :P

she, bernath sensei and lizzie lynn sensei are also at aikido of santa barbara which would be great to go to too...

back to the thread subject though, chiba sensei would always say ukemi is absorbing the technique with the whole body. so move your body in a way that the whole body is affected, not just your wrist. don't pull away because it will obviously HURT! get in close to tori for you nikyo ukemi.

regards to charlie sensei, shawn and annunziata

see you guys up there!
Your gonna have to show me that tape shawn showed me that nikkyo ukemi that you mentioned it does help .

Re: tendonitis......help

Just like anything else, to use kenesio tape, you just need to educate yourself first. Some sports people are willing to show you/ teach you how to apply it to yourself. My old sports trainer for tennis taught me how to tape myself. Kenesio tape wasn't so big then, but I am sure she would be the same way with that. Like Mary said though, there is no point spending the money (it isn't cheap) and slapping it on yourself. You need to know exactly where it needs to be applied.

Kinesio tape also isn't a magic pill. If you keep reinjuring yourself, no amount of tape will fix the problem.

She's right.
Avoid things that hurt man until you start feeling better. And once you're feeling better learn to tap out quicker and respond more dynamically. Basically, avoid re-injury.

agree... hence, the importance of taking good ukemi again, that's why i stated earlier that what it DOES help with is being able to stay active while the muscle/injury recuperates.

practice hard
