My partner attacks. I throw and keep my hands on him at all times, doesn't matter the technique, I want to keep my hands connected with him. I don't attempt to control his movement as he rises from the mat to attack, just feel his movement, blend with it and throw him again. Repeat as often as desirable. We usually practice this exercise in a circle, throwing each uke 3 or 4 times before moving on to the next attacker.
