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

Judo background also (shodan, but long, long ago). If nage knows how to throw, ukemi is pretty much like judo and easy to land. If nage isn't confident, then ukemi can end up on a "corner" from nage trying to protect uke too much - takes away the rhythm of the throw.
