Re: When Can an Instructor Stop Training?

Pesonally, I like to take ukemi for my students because then I get to 'feel' what they are doing, as well as to see and hear it. Maybe when you get to be a senior instructor you are able to pick up everything a student does by sight alone. Personally I'm not convinced, having experienced tori using large amounts of upper body muscle power that the instructor didn't seem to notice, or worse, believed was good Aikido.. <shudder>
