Re: Article: Uke is Never Wrong? by "The Grindstone"

IMO, "Uke is never wrong" simply means Nage should not blame the uke when his/her technique sucks. Nonetheless, a good article indeed.
Certainly a nage/tori/shite should take responsibility for their technique, yet where does one draw the line in a 'cooperative' training environment?

Lots of room for misunderstanding there; without the dialog to explicate the training contract.
