Learning to read energy
Which role ,uke or nage, had the most siginfigance in teaching you to read energy?

As Uke you learn how to read energy and get where you're being taken safely.

As Nage you learn to read to the energy given and change\redirect it to perform a techinque.

Your ability to read and manipulate the energy is directly related to your success in both roles. So which role actaully teaches it to you?

I would say weapons practice. In particular, bokken; was the most helpful for me (and remains to be).

Re: Learning to read energy
You gain insights from both aspects....( and weapons as well)
I personally learn more from feeling the technique through ukemi. Your milage may vary, of course.

If the interaction is a true blending, you're going to experience input and feedback in either role.
