Re: Ukemi's a little ruff

Could your partners be trying to "take it easy on you"?

Some of the worst ukemi I have ever taken came from nages who weren't sure I was up to it, so they faltered or pulled back or cut the connection. Ow! It's easier to take good ukemi from a fully committed unhesitating throw.
