Here’s something we should aspire to:
A former student of ours, got into a quad-bike accident while on holiday. She was on a quad-bike hitting the hills on badly rutted roads. She came onto a downhill stretch and the bike started to roll and pick up speed on a stretch where there was a cliff edge on the left and a cliff wall on the right. The brakes were not working well and although she continued to apply the brakes, the bike was still out of control so she steered the bike towards the cliff wall.
The bike hit the cliff wall and she was thrown off the bike superman-style but managed to pull off an ukemi front roll so she escaped the whole scenario with scratches on the hip and ankle and a ruined jacket.
We’re all glad that she’s ok and perhaps it will give you all some added motivation to properly learn your rolls!
More to test out a phone camera 😛

During daily training, I strongly advise all members to take every class seriously and not to disturb the atmosphere with unnecessary annoyance. Please maintain the discipline but at the same time practice joyfully.
I also would like to call all members to help to maintain the cleanliness of the Dojo. The Dojo is for all and we need to keep it clean. Please do not leave your empty bottles, tissues etc unattended, the rubbish bin is there…feel free to collect and throw the rubbish to the proper place.
