In Training Ukemi in Training Entry Tools Rate This Entry

Ukemi in training.

Ukemi, being an important part of learning Aikido, is very important in the development and execution of a technique.

Since Aikido uses the energy of one attacking, then uke's role in making the technique work is extremely important.

Uke then must attack. If uke is not attacking, then how can one truly learn and experience Aikido?

When learning Ukemi place emphasis on learning to attack and building confidence and trust in the one performing the technique.

The one performing the technique must then focus also on building trust and confidence for Uke to attack.

If you are afraid, or have been made afraid to attack, then you are simply dancing with your partner.

If you can not perform the technique when someone attacks, and can humble yourself to learn, then you are learning Aikido.

OK, now I think I'm on to something....

Do you want to be the best student, then just be a person that really wants to learn....

Do you want to be the best instructor, then just be a person that really wants to learn....

Good luck.

In General The WORST Aikido Instructor Entry Tools Rate This Entry

The worst instructor is the one that looks for the best students so that he can "look like" the best instructor.

And I should add, the WORST student is the one that looks for the best instructors so that he can "look like" the best student.
