Re: Confused... Uke Ready to Jump?

I was taught a firm lesson by TK Chiba Sensei in the late 1960s, we did a demonstration on Granada TV, knowing how important this TV appearance was for Aikido, the first technique I did what I later realized was a `BIG` ukemi..........Chiba Sensei snarled in my ear " Mr Ewiss, I don't need your help anymore !! ", he then proceeded to hammer me around the mat totally without my cooperation.
