Re: Aikido: The learning of natural movement

A little aside here ;

Exerpt from an article in Aikido Journal online-
From Ikeda Sensei after hosting Karate teacher Ushiro at Aikido summer camp In Colorado for the second time.
From that article I find this confusing ;
"Ushiro shihan pointed out numerous times during training that the type of ukemi usually seen in aikido in which one slaps the mat with their hands, was dangerous. After some thought however, he said he could see the reason for such ukemi."

Anyone usually see such ukemi at Aikido practice?
