Re: Poll: How different are the roles of nage and uke to you?

Yes, he will be back soon, but it will set him back, but actually it may help him learn an important lesson - not to fight technique. It sounds so bad to me to say that, but it is true. That is why I don't agree with beginners (or young people) resisting. It takes time and maturity to learn how and when to offer resistance.

I am really looking forward to seeing him on the mat again, so that I can get over my guilt, as it is a very powerful and distracting feeling.
