Re: How many instructors teach Ukemi Waza?

I dont think Ukemi causes anything negative either. I understand that you think it creates unnatural reactions to a technique, but so does taking a technique.

Koto gaeshi for instance. If you get thrown numerous times in the same fashion, you start to either want to reverse it everytime, or go down before the technique has actually cause severe pain.

Anyways- I think Id rather learn how to fall correctly, then to get hurt because someone wanted to try Koshi nage on me and I wasnt prepared to land.
