One of my personal experiences in that was discussing with my orthopedic surgeon how long it would take if I let him repair my torn rotator cuff. I had already done nage-less ukemi for shihonage with my good arm to demo for him 'just how in the H*** did you do this in the first place'---note to self, beware big Iwama guys not used to pinning tiny partners---and he had turned pale watching. So I was surprised he agreed to my demand to 'at least let me roll afterwards' so easily. So I rolled down the hall a forward then backward roll. As I walked back to him he called me a lunatic and said 'no, absolutely not, no, no, no'.
