Tongue Which ukemi "flavor"?

Hi folks,
I was thinking earlier today about the differing style, or flavors of ukemi. Every dojo has a changing roster of ukes and each receives techniques a bit differantly than everyone else.
I wonder which style you practice most, ie: are you "easy"
do you give much resistance? Do you "help" the newbies to get it? do you change and modulate your responses to the individual? ( I am sure this is so, but .....)
I love to take the more energetis attacks, but couldn't do so untill recently.
One of our "benchmarks" has moved recently. (gumby jointed, physically big & strong) You know, "If you can pin Robert, you can count on it being a "real" pin"....etc.
You break Sensei Mike's balance, you've got good kuzushi.
Just food for discussion and thought.

Play nice, practice hard, but remember, this is a MARTIAL art!
