The 'teacher uke' is known as the 'shadow teacher'. Becoming a shadow teacher is part of the path.
It is a rather sad part of the path, because it has an addictive quality about it. That is the trouble with progress; you can't go home again.
You mean an advanced student shouldn't tell a beginner how to do a technique correctly? Why do they work together then?
