Perhaps I should add (to my last post) that in my own dojo, we teach beginners ukemi in a fairly strict sequence and the ukemi from kaiten-nage (an ukemi where one hand is held and the direction is controlled by tori) comes fairly late in the sequence. To add some context, these same beginners are now being introduced to mae ukemi with the arms folded, or the obi grasped (i.e., without any use of the hands as a guide).

Best regards,
