Re: Ukemi vs. Protecting your attacker

It's a mith that an Aikidoka can perform a technique on someone who doesn't know how to take ukemi and cause no harm on the attacker.
that's just not true.

Your problem is that you have common sense.

I think Aikido training is just a two person kata. The nage and uke have to know the form to perform together. Someone here says that you can perform a kata without knowing the form. I think it's strange comment.

The outsiders say Aikido is fake. They're right in a sense. In most dojo and demo, the movement are prearranged to teach certain technique. Some aikidoda get confused and think the training kata IS the technique.
