Re: Best karate style for aikido?

Hello Justin and Mark,

Justin, you're right...., the take downs did "look" rougher due to the lack of ukemi skills....

Mark, what a great opportunity to train in Japan with Ushiro Sensei! I agree that we aikidoka tend to get a little lazy with our ukemi (me, most definitely, included) and that training on harder surfaces will let you know very quickly where your ukemi needs to improve.
