Re: "Silent" Ukemi

A lot has to do with the architecture of the throw as well. For example, I've never seen a silent uke that was NOT receiving a throwing architecture that had a lot of openings (for turning, for repositioning, for gathering oneself, etc.). In other words, it's probably best that you match your ukemi to the architectures of your dojo's Aikido.
