Re: What is good ukemi?

He also talked about how we should focus on being faster, more responsive, and "honest" while taking ukemi.
I wonder what he meant by "faster"? Fall faster? Attack faster? Move faster? IMHO, speed has nothing to do with ukemi.... and everything to do with uke-mi.

I wonder what he meant by "more responsive"? More responsive to being thrown? More responsive to (absorbing) force? More responsive to what?

I wonder what he meant by being "honest"? Does that mean not falling over unless you absolutely have to? Or falling over anyway even if your partner does not have kuzushi?
