Re: Aikido™ and Aiki…do. Where are we at?

For about the ten thousandth time I am not saying that I don't teach ukemi. I do. It just isn't the same idea.
I just watched a series of throws done by Randi. Never once did his opponent "take ukemi" but they all got thrown.
AND NO ONE GOT HURT DOING SO.
Attacking, and continuing to do so in a throw changes the body dynamic, it is also more protective.
Then again I'm not your teacher nor trying to convince you of anything, so have fun and stay safe.
