In the videos I have seen of Ueshiba Morihei, he often is practicing outside in the "dirt". Not as hard as concrete, but not a lot of give on dirty ground either.
But was he taking ukemi?

At the Kobukan they did not use mats either. I wonder if there was as many spectacular ukemi's then as you see now.
