You know something that is interesting is how on any given day, the simplest things that you have been doing every day since you started martial arts might be beyond your capacity.
Yesterday it was the simple backfalling ukemi for kosotogari. Nothing spectacular but the throw was really freaking me out for some reason. Finally I realized that it was creeping me out so much that every time my partner set the throw up, I was sitting down before he had a chance to throw it - instinctively saving myself from having to fall from the real throw.
Interesting... Haven't experienced this phenomenon that intensely for a while - especially with a white belt throw!
