uke vs nage

Hey guys wassup. i as just wondering something. have you guys ever regret the fact of being able to perform ukemi well. The reason I ask is IME the better your abitlity to fall the less nage you perform. For some reason instructers will expose your abitlity to fall and kinda forget about your ability to perform aikido. It gets to the point where people asks me if I even nknow aikido.
So I guess my question is, how to deal with this situation, My ukemi and nage are strong. And this year I will be going to a traditional school in novascotia where they train hard. I am trying to aoid a situation where i show up with great ukemi and weak nage skills
Well thanks a lot fo your time.

Humbaly yours Justin MacEachern
