Re: Poll: If you didn't train at all as uke, would you still be training aikido?
There are two ways of reading this question (to my mixed up Brit mind):
- Would it be aikido if one were only doing nage waza?
- Would you still be going to class if you could only do nage waza?
To me the heart of aikido is its reciprocal nature, though I appreciate for the elderly how ukemi can become difficult. Personally, I'd rather drop the nage than the ukemi given a choice.
Good question either way,
