Basics Class: Ukemi

June 12, 2007

Monday June 11th 

Alex asked me to take this class and mentioned “Rolling and Cartwheels” so we spent the hour looking at our ukemi and balance. We did reverse shoulder rolling, headstands, basic cartwheels handsprings over each other and over a chair, cartwheels against striking and  to get out of genseki nage and various little drills to get us to get comfortable upside down while moving and flowing. We found breathing was important along with  practice, practice practice.
