Re: Punishing Uke

I do notice that in tachi-dori and jo-dori exercise, the problems of resistant uke is not so great... anyone else notice this phenomenon?

I can't point my finger at it, but it seems to me, when a weapon comes into play, both tori and uke suddenly becomes more cooperative for fear of injury and tend not to be so gung-ho. Is my observation accurate?

Thoughts and opinion anyone?
