Re: If you have trained in both Aikikai and Iwama, please help me...

Oof. If I'd had to invent all of my own ukemi, I'd definitely have been injured. That said, perhaps it's more natural- provided that a technique isn't carried out on someone who hasn't figured out how not to get hurt. I suppose it's a matter of acceleration, both physical and mental.
