Re: How many instructors teach Ukemi Waza?

while i was at the new york aikikai summer camp, i saw people who were taking backwards breakfalls out of shihonage. Normally when i take a break fall from that, I turn towards it and make it into a forward one, But these guys were flipping backwards over the nage's shoulders. I've never seen anyone do that before.

But i have to agree with the first reply in that all dojo's teach ukemi and basic breakfalling.
