      Eric, thanks for the warm wishes! I’ll take some pics as it will be most interesting. For example, no mats-teaching concrete ukemi. I’ve done it before as an object lesson, but never as status quo! This first group, they are going to be tough!!!

    Wow thats going to be rough, are you teaching beginners as well or only more advanced students? Concrete is a tough way to learn Ukemi for a beginner! I have tried rolls on concrete a few times and it was not too bad but i would have been terrified to start that way.

      All beginners. We all are. We take our time when ukemi comes up. Stay soft, round, relax, breathe. Heck, we are doing yoga on the concrete as well!
