Larry, that is exactly right, and what I was trying to say in my previous post!
I tend to believe that it is easier to learn a technique than it is to learn the body movement of aikido and learning how to redirect energy(ki). But once you learn how to redirect energy, break your uke's one-point, etc... then it doesn't really matter how resistant the uke is.... Now most times it just go with the way the uke wants to go - and it usually ends up in another technique.
It is really important for uke to learn how to go with the technique that is being taught. And again, what I do depends on the energy that the uke is letting out - positive or negative ki.
By the way, your futbol (soccer) team really did well this past weekend against Honduras! I hope you guys don't play that well against the US team though!
