Re: Aikido Principles: Unbendable Arm

We teach the unbendable arm to every new student joining us in order to help them with their mae ukemi. The unbendable arm portion takes about five minutes, while the ukemi takes a lifetime.
During my Judo days we did every which way ukemi, there was no need for unbendable arms. Didn't take a lifteme either.
