Re: When Can an Instructor Stop Training?

Is ukemi so central to training?

I believe taking ukemi from a master teaches quite a bit but is there that much to learn from taking ukemi from one of your students?

Taking ukemi for your students in a one on one situation can also help them but not much more than a reasonably trained yudansha can provide.

I do about 50% for several reasons but not because it is central to the improvement of my Aikido.
