Re: Ukemi: pluses and minuses

The logic is simple, do it, feel it, learn from it.

Teachers can (but don't have to) give pointers and tips as to how one can safely fall to the ground. But you still have to fall to the ground safely all by yourself. I'm not sure why anyone needs any credit for this at all, learning to not be overtaken by great force, by yielding is a reward unto itself.
