Look Down, Fall Down
Look down, fall down. I remind my students of this during combinations across the floor in class. The idea is to keep your eyes and head up, to feel like a royal. You will convey confidence even if you’re feeling nerves on the inside. If you let your eyes glance down, you may actually lose your balance. Even if you don’t literally crash and burn, you’ll still appear timid or apologetic about your movement. I know that you want to show the audience that you are polished and secure… and you know you can do it.
