Re: A Consideration of Aikido Practice within the Context of Internal Training

I must have taken the initial premise wrong. I do think that once a person is learning aiki and IS, that taking ukemi is a great test of holding and testing those core elements. My perhaps mistaken impression and intepretation was that taking ukemi should/could be a precurser to learning aiki and IS -- which, in the absence of any fundamental exercises one should be practicing while taking that ukemi, could lead to other results and habits that may in fact be detrimental to learning IS and aiki.
