Re: Poll: How comfortable are you in taking falls from aikido koshinage?
I've actually got a judo background, and it took me a while to figure out why people at my dojo treated it with such kid gloves.
Personally, I find it to be the most natural. But that's because all judo falls are essentially koshinage falls.
It's actually very dissatisfying for me the way people try to do it so slowly and carefully; I find that I can't even take it seriously unless I get slammed harder than gravity will take me. All in good time, I'm sure. ;-) I'm still an Aikido newbie.
