At our dojo, we rarely practice Randori, except for one Sensei who includes Randori in every regular class. Too bad he only teaches one day a week. Usually it is done with 4 Ukes attacking one Nage any way they want, but with commitment. They can individually choose to resist or to follow Nage. however, since it is a committed attack, they rarely have the choice, when Nage has some experience, that is. They just fly around the dojo :-) Randori is great and feels so authentic and so real. You get a rush of adrenaline, you feel really attacked and you do not spare your Ukes so much. It is the ultimate test apart from real fight when you know if your technique is efficiently correct or not. I just wish that we could do it more often.
