Re: How many instructors teach Ukemi Waza?

Thanks for all the replies. The only reason I ask is because in my new place of study, we only practice on forward and backward rolls. A lot of us have past experience in arts that have done extensive Ukemiwaza, however, some of the less experienced people have no clue how to land and they always seem to be so afraid of techniques like Ogoshinage, Koshinage, Shihonage, etc. So I was just curious to see what other dojos are doing.

I also noticed that a lot of people on these forums ask or comment about breakfalling so I was basically bringing up the question to maybe stir, like Xu stated, "All instructors must train their students in Ukemiwaza."

Thanks again for the replies.
