Re: committed attack/sensitive ukemi paradox
Just had a thought. When I was "home" a month ago, working with Mike Lasky Sensei was a real experience.
I forgot how strong he can be and responsive to subtle shifts in balance, intent, direction.
He feels very rooted, and strong, even on his attacks, but he is also flowing and dynamic...all at the same time! I know you know what I am talking about!
I think it is a matter of experience of finding that "sweet spot" between strength and flow. Or something like that!
