Aikido is one of the most safe activity compared to all sports that are performed individually or as a team. The first thing that is taught to the students in Aikido trainings is to make correct ukemi (fall/roll). If made accurately, ukemi is the most important work that protects our body from harm. On the other hand, in Aikido, the upper ranked Aikidokas (more experienced students) are obliged to show the utmost care for the lower ranked ones (less experienced students) to avoid any damage to their bodies which is the most fundamental moral rule of Aikido. This moral rule does not apply to the lower ranked Aikidokas, as the upper ranked ones are considered to be able to protect themselves against injury.
