Ukemi practice

There isn't much more basic a practice in Aikido than ukemi, the ability to take a fall safely. We do it on every attack throughout a class. We worked on some basic falling starting with the exercise koho tento undo. We worked from katatetori most of the evening, nage concentrating on blending, uke concentrating to ukemi and both concentrating on staying connected.
