Re: Ukemi vs. Protecting your attacker

Are there any reasons FOR doing lots of throwing and breakfalls?
Well, they are fun
I think they are an important aspect of the art but I don't think they are the only aspect. There are important lessons to be learned on both the nage and uke sides from techniques with breakfalls. I also think there are lessons that are just as important when we learn to protect the attacker all the way to the ground.
