Attack your opponent
Attack them so that they feel injured even before contact
Leave no doubt that they will be hit

Sincerity of attack is important in the learning process. It offers lessons equally important for nage and uke. With a sincere attack, nage learns the value of moving their entire body. Techniques can't be forced, and so just using your arms is very self-defeating. Someone will be stronger than you.

Uke also learns by giving a sincere attack. This might dive a bit more into the yin/yang of everything, however. Nage's lesson was very physical in nature, learning how to move the entire body, becoming part of the attack instead of resisting it, blending in the same direction, not relying on physical strength but rather the momentum of the attack. The counter side of that lesson is the philosophical aspect, this is what uke learns. The more sincere uke's attack, the better the technique will be. Ultimately, this will send uke flying courtesy of Aiki Airlines. So, if you isolate the act of attacking someone, this is creating imbalance. Uke really just needs to learn to calm down and stop attacking people!!!
