Re: Poll: How often do you find yourself having to suppress your own natural responses as uke during aikido practice?

I love to fall. (My life proves that!)

I have to suppress my survival instinct when nage helps me to feel threatened. I have fought for my life, and aikido training is really about staying out of that modality.

For me, training and ukemi is learning how to be human and not an animal. My wife claims I have a long way to go, and would you Please pick up after yourself
