"Uke"   ; noun ; Japanese: The one about to be thrown

"Nage" ; noun; Japanese: The one doing the throwing

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Words of Wisdon from the Chief Instructor:

1) Every Student will alternate being Uke and Nage .... do I need to remind you that what goes around....

2) Remember Students, if you break your Uke, you will not get another one.

 Breaking one's uke sounds painful


Ah My Dear Annie

In the schools/style I follow, It happens upon occasion,
sometimes an unfortunate accident, sometimes over-enthusiasm...

Injuries are more likely in hard styles or Brazilian JuiJutsu...

And upon rare occasion a practitioner brings their angst to the dojo...
In our style, we all look out for each other, senior students deliberately seek out juniors
To practice with so that both overenthusiasm and accidents are mitigated.

I myself was having difficulty with achieving Chi flow, and brown belts were always willing to
Help out. When I finally started getting it right, I accidentally threw my good friend much much further than intended... nearly twenty feet... fortunately he practiced daily and was preparing for testing to black, and handled it effortlessly. He came running back exclaiming “you got it!” But  i kinda freaked
And lost it for the rest of that day... couldn’t throw him more than three feet.

The chief instructor is always on the lookout for ... “people with issues” and handle them appropriately. On only one occasion while I was practicing someone who brought their problems with them was asked to leave until they got it together.

On the other hand, once I learned how to Take breakfall (Ukemi Waza) safely, if I was having mental strife I sought out the seniors and asked them to please help me work on various techniques involving hard falls “so I could work on breakfall” because getting thrown hard and going “splat” on the matt somehow “knocked the bad emotions” right out of me. Beware, one has to be proficient , and your milage may vary....

“Uke goes crunch” = very bad
ukemi waza = best
Splat waza = works for me

Aikido Break fall examples
