Re: How many instructors teach Ukemi Waza?

If you do a throw or technique on someone over and over, they are going to change the way they react. To even assume that someone is going to act naturally after being hurt once is ludicrous. If you smack me in my face without warning, you can bet Im not going to let that happen again. It's only natural for a person to react when they are taking a technique over and over.

So your theory of having natural body reactions would mean youd need new ignorant students that knew nothing about the arts everytime you performed a technique in order to learn these so called secrets of Aikido.
