Progressive approach to aikido ukemi

Quantity:

A progressive demonstration of aikido ukemi by Maung Thant of Myanmar Aikido performed inside the Iwama Dojo. Several of the ukemi shown are done in unusual ways not common in aikido dojos. Some of the ukemi would not be practical from aikido techniques but the flexibility and agility acquired from such falling exercises would certainly be beneficial to training.

    I really like the presentation and encourage folks to train like this since it shows Uke unique ways to understand how to perform throws. However I see nothing that is unusual or progressive and disagree strongly that it is not practical. This is simply a rolling side fall that is common in Judo and in Nihon Goshin Aikido.
