Video/DVD: "Ukemi From the Ground Up" DVD by Ellis Amdur
Posted 1/14/2005 4:56pm [from Jun Akiyama]

"Ukemi From the Ground Up", a DVD on learning ukemi by Ellis Amdur, has just been released. The description of the DVD states, "This DVD offers a step-by-step procedure to learn and/or instruct safe aikido ukemi. Whether entirely new to the art, or desiring to retool one’s skills, the methods here will enable any reasonably fit practitioner to be able to take falls in aikido (and other similar arms-length grappling systems) safely. The methods here are definitely not merely to assist in learning how to collude with the person executing the technique these methods enable one to be prepared and able to gracefully manage both the malevolent and the inept as well as skilled practitioner executing ordinary technique." The DVD is also now in the reviews section of this website here.
