Re: "Hidden in Plain Sight" - ukemi as a training tool

From my own experience, after awhile doing ukemi, a person instinctively learns how not to loose kuzushi to tori.

What O'Sensei was doing physically was his wordless book of instruction, but in part not what he was doing himself but what he was doing to uke?

So learning good ukemi is the first step in learning Aikido?
