My teacher has told us many times this one saying. "The Uke is never wrong"

I'll leave it to you guys to figure out what he means.

Why don't you tell us what you think he means. I actually disagree with this to a certain extent. The Uke can be wrong at times especially when they lock out and put themselves in a more vulnerable position. But at the same times it can be fun to work with people who do that as long as you are skilled enough to not get frustrated and they have good enough ukemi where they will not get hurt.
