it can certainly be perceived as such.. but, the latter can also be achieved by running away, and dont necessarily mean to hurt the opponent.
If i have the level of ability to avoid injuring a opponent and avoid injury to myself its possible that that is what i will do, but until i achieve that level, my own safety are my priority.

In real life, you cant trust the compassion of other people if you surrender yourself to their mercy, but you CAN count on your own compassion to let your opponent go.

and the first part is that i would feel horribly bad if i happened to injure my uke in the dojo, as that would've meant carelessness on my part..

so sorry, not that terribly profound after all...
I love it when other people express my thoughts better than me.

Thank You
