Come Fall with Me

Monday is Uke class. We will work on all levels of falls as well as determining what level of resistance should be given. Each partner is different both in experience and physical ability, why would you always attack the same way? Have you considered that though uke is the one who receives the technique they are regarded as the teaching side of the uke/nage pair?

See you at 8!
