Re: Greetings to All

Hey Paul!!

Welcome! Never ever worry about doing things wrong...I've been studying for 2 1/2 years and I still manage to do some sort of ukemi wrong and never ever do I go home unconfused....even on nights where its just a test! Have a GREAT day!!!

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me if you can
From my blasphemy in my wasteland
Save Me, Shinedown

Hi Paul,

Welcome from Nashville, Tn. Ukemi is an art unto itself and at 5 weeks you are definitely still getting a feel for it. It will come in time. If you are getting a lot of stress in your shoulders from techniques being applied or falls/rolls where you are landing too hard you might ask your nage to slow down a little when you are training so that you don't get injured.

Harmony does not mean that there are no conflicts,
for the dynamic spiral of existence embraces both extremes.

Re: Greetings to All

Try ukemi from a kneeling position with one leg up, holding a tanto with both of your hands in front of you (not in a position where one hand is closer to you than the other).

Good luck!!
