How many fingers are you holding up?

On Tuesday at Aikido a somewhat overzealous sparring partner threw me and I came down hard on the back of my head. I didn't even have time to react-- one minute I was rushing at him and the next thing I knew I was lying on my back and gazing up at the ceiling. I think I might have actually had a light concussion-- felt dizzy and unfocused for the next 24 hours. :-P

Of course this happened shortly after I'd been mentally congratulating myself for all the progress I've made learning how to fall properly and roll in order to diffuse the impact. In my mind I'm moving like Steven Seagal, but I'm afraid the reality is closer to Miss Piggy. (Hiiiiiiiiya!)
