Ukemi is the method of receiving techniques to protect oneself from serious injury, although in general terms ukemi equates to forward, backward or side break fall.

There are various ways of ukemi according to the technique and circumstances of practice. To master ukemi is one of the most important aspects in learning Aikido, not only from the point of view of safety but also for the confidence it gives in practice, necessary for the real enjoyment of the art. Good ukemi should end with the person being projected in a stable posture and fully prepared to receive the next technique. However, the idea of ukemi in Aikido should be understood more deeply. Ideal Aikido has neither winner nor loser, just pure action, one person executes the action and the other takes ukemi. therefore, there is no difference between technique and ukemi in Aikido.

It is important to understand that ukemi is as important as technique.
