Hello,

I guarantee that my instructor will give you shihonage that you can't "just let go" of.
Umm, I'll second that.

When I began Aikido, I often wondered the same thing. My brother (younger, but larger) would "test" me occasionally. When he let go, my technique fell apart. The more I practiced and learned about how to work with resistant uke and those uke who let go, the better able I was to successfully toss my brother on his bum.
