The Kanji of Aikidō Ⅰ: Ukemi

Today’s Kanji:
Kanji Kun ON Signification Note Henshall
う.け (u.ke) ジュ () Receive, accept, get, catch 受け身 (ukemi) is the person that does the attack, and thus the one that receives the technique.
By extension it is the art of accepting a technique. Quite difficult to do properly in my opinion, as one must adapt the attack to the skills and style of the partner.
