How to be uke/ukemi extensive

Two names that pop into my head for something like this:

Don Ellingsworth, one of John Messores' students, has awesome ukemi and shares it in seminars. And I think he charges a good bottle of whiskey or scotch. Great exercises, good basics and lots of things you can take back to class.

Also, Dan Messisco spends significant time on ukemi and uke waza . Its not necessarily his focus, but man it changes the way to do aikido.

I would recommend checking out Ellis Amdur's DVD on ukemi

Assuming you mean uke in the wider sense rather than uniquely in the sense of falls, spending a bit of time on kaeshi waza really helped me. Suddenly certain things made sense that hadn't before.

I,m mean moving in general also to give good clean committed atacks at nages speed that they can do the technique cleanly as possible.
