It is difficult to describe these things in words... It's the type of thing where I could show you all five levels in person in a couple of minutes, and it would be much clearer exactly what I am talking about.
I'm sure it would be immediately clear if we were doing this in person.

I get that the difference between semi-compliant and passive resistance is in the initial attack. I think I know what you're getting at. Semi-compliant would be those times the attacker does an "easy" attack or kinda "settles in" before nage responds? Passive resistance would be those times uke gives a "determined" or "realistic" attack? Is that right?

My dojo operates around these levels, generally speaking, with the more senior students engaging in the fourth when they're feeling spunky.
