In Training The Road to Success is Paved with Failure Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #86 New 08-20-2018 07:17 AM
Learning to fall is one of the first things you learn in Aikido. You can't really learn any techniques until you learn the art of falling without getting hurt.

I think I read somewhere that O'Sensei said that he used the earth as a weapon. If you throw someone hard enough, the ground will definitely not be friendly.

I like to match learning ukemi, or falling, to the art of learning to Fail. Failure is something we all have to deal with, and the faster we get back up again, the sooner we will reach success...
