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

I read the question the other way--would I still go to class? I don't think I would; it would be too frustrating, and I'd probably take up tai chi instead.

Due to weird mixes of students in some classes I have had brief experiences of nage-only and uke-only training, and I can't say I would thrive on either one, but given my choice I'd be uke.

It would still be aikido, I just wouldn't be getting as much out of it if I were only nage.
