Terrific morning. We had a new guy from PA start at shodokan. He's obviously experienced. His ukemi is relatively soft. I didn't get to see him do any break falls. I noticed he seems to be mindful of the possibility of atemi. He covers up and generally keeps an eye on nage. Very fun working with a new person.
Speaking of soft ukemi. After much trying I finally managed a soft break fall. Not sure if I can replicate it. Nice to see that it's possible for me.
