Re: Poll: How often do you actively slap the ground with your arms/hands when you fall during aikido training?

I should add that the best ukemi I had in the past two years was from a diminutive rokkyudan - who had me falling before i realized it. I perceived I had 'no feet', and did my best from there. I think this is the zenith of aikido.

He asked why I was laughing so hard when I got up, and I explained that it felt wonderful to be so fooled.
