Re: O sensei and 'correct ukemi'

Hi Mark,

I was referring to the "slant" that Mr. S. put on his interpretation of Peter's words.

Anybody believes that O sensei could do the techniques only with particular behavior of uke?Me, I don't believe such thing.
This allows the imputation that Peter said such a thing. I do not think he *did* say such a thing, nor do I think that it is implied by what Peter *did* say.

I think the story about Ohba Sensei shows that point of view (the opposite of what Mr. S implied) particularly well.
