Re: Training !!!

Hi Mark,

I recommend working on ukemi at home. If you don`t have space to do whole rolls, you can just rock back and forth on your back like you are going to take a back roll. It sounds simplistic, but I guarentee that it will help. Also, shadowboxing your techniques is good, but shadowboxing ukemi is even better. Start with an attack, pretend a partner is doing a technique on you, and take the ukemi. You should get to the point where someone can tell what technique you are pretending to take ukemi for.

Hope it helps!
Charles Hill

Re: Training !!!

Do body shifts, throw some kicks and punches, read about Aikido, practice your rolling, general foot work, meditate, get a friend to help you with those ki exercises. Basically, you can do a lot of it outside the dojo. When your friend is busy, or recovering from your last practice session try just going through the body motion alone. Practice moving from your centre in regular activity like walking. Perhaps some people from the dojo are willing to practice outside the dojo. General exercise is good too.
