Re: Poll: How comfortable are you in taking falls from aikido koshinage?

We simply don't do them. We do sudori instead.

I am comfortable taking them from some one who knows how to lead correctly into a koshinage because I can relax into it. However, I took Judo for a while and the first class was O goshi. From that experience and visiting around a lot to other schools, I was able to get comfortable. Still as you get older, it isn't pleasant to take ukemi from someone who doesn't do a proper throw or tries to slam you.
