Re: Poll: Which way of ukemi do you employ for you to learn aikido more effectively?

I take it easy with beginners, but with advanced and senior students, I resist. I do not resist throughout the whole technique, nor do I muscle up, but i do attack hard and if it is a grabbing technique, I grab well and receive the technique after the initial hold is broken. If I feel there is a place I can resist later in the technique, sometimes I've tried and usually receive the proper motivating atemi.
