Re: High Ukemi Help?

Now don't get me wrong, I'm all for learning good ukemi from difficult situations. If you watch me train, I'm sure you would say I had very good ukemi. However, I have never attempted to jump over anything higher than a crouching person, and I really don't see the need to. In fact, I have never felt the need to jump when being thrown in aikido at all. My response would be to ask sensei why he thinks it is important to jump over stuff... Then again, that's probably easier for someone of my rank and otherwise pretty good ukemi...
