Re: fear of ukemi

Hiyaku ukemi, one leg straight, one leg bent, (but you tend to slap on this one, unless really good), and bent leg pushes into the straight leg. You come right up and body change / forward pivot to face nage immediately.

One enterprising nage thought to rush me during such a breakfall. Boy, did he get a surprise!
