Re: Active Ukemi

Bravo George! It's time that other seniors are passing on this info. Intent, posture, distance, and timing that are appropriate to the situation are important to budo training; not getting back in position to be thrown again as fast as possible. It's not only bad for real budo, as you stated... it's really hard on our knees, etc.

Thanks for another thoughtful post.
