Storing Mats

by Webmaster - 20. Aug, 2000

Did you know?

For club dojos, where the mats must be stored after each session, there are many ways to turn the tedious process into a fun and entertaining pastime

Here's some tips;

Picking up - Grab one end of the mat and raise it from the floor slightly, and then execute a full ukemi parallel with the mat's length The mat will automatically be raised without much effort to your shoulder and over your head

Putting Down - While holding the mat over your head, execute another ukemi to place them on the floor and release them ( or on top of another mat ), the mat will cushion the ukemi

Imagine several person lining up to do this, and the work will become hilarious and faster than if it was done conventionally

Happy Trying!
