Yeah kaeshiwaza is a good example of what I was talking about. When we do empty handed freeplay where 2 individuals (there is not really an Uke and Tori in this case) are equally attempting techniques, it aids in not utilising too much muscular force to resist a technique but instead move with it, constantly adapting and using the changes in motion to assist your own technique.
And when it works, boy, you punish uke!
Well, you have the fundamentals of Kendo there too. And, I suppose, of all combat. Instant adaptation of planned execution.
