Re: Ukemi: pluses and minuses

my approach to ukemi is to prevent harms done to you by nage/tori and look for opportunity to reverse or to let nage/tori knows that he/she/it is vulnerable. it's a two-way conversation. at the high-end, it would end up look like taiji push-hand but with an aikido flavor.
