Re: Poll: If you didn't train at all as uke, would you still be training aikido?

For myself I feel that I can "learn" a technique moreso through taking ukemi than performing it. I don't know exactly how to explain it.

Also I look at Aikido as a means of learning how to give and receive. Take away one of those and it becomes something else. At least in my eyes.

With Respect,
