Re: On who should teach beginners

I my school everyone trains together---1st class rookie to seasoned aikidokas. I usually teach all beginners, esp the ukemi. Tomiki Shihan taught me ukemi and if he couldn't, Hideo Ohba Shihan did. Because of that, my students have great ukemi and can take any fall.
