Re: Instructor got mad because I didnt fall

Im with Mr Simpson on that one, it annoys me more when people just fall over, when you haven't had time to do anything, "duffy diving" as Sensei Riley calls it. I think it can be more counterproductive than resisting.

When Uki resists they are risking an injury, so tori must be even more carefull, but it also gives tori a chance to see how they can make a technique work without just wrentching uki's arm ot of the socket. Having said that tho, needlessly resisting can be a pain in the arse when you just want a good session.
