Timing is everything on these things. One thing that I found especially funny was the fact that if the Uke can extend BEYOND the nage... then the reversal is ON!
I was trying to explain how practice for reversals was important and I was misunderstood. I was TOLD that you have to go with the energy and move with it. Looking for the "hic-up" in the technique is the opening you need to reverse. Well, sure... you can feel that hic-up... but can you DO something? That's what needs practice... so you know what to do when the opprotunity comes around.
