How does your use of 'held tensions' corroespond with the statement from Ikeda Sensei you mentioned earlier?
There's a difference between maintaining a tension in your body and maintaining a slight tension between you and uke. E.g., you can relaxedly pull on uke's arm so there is a "tension" between you and him, but you need not have any unnecessary tension in your body while doing so.
