Re: "Hidden in Plain Sight" - ukemi as a training tool

To be honest, the main question is imho not "What would it look like?". The main question is: how to create a form of training in which tori AND uke are constantly working on their internal skills, be it actively (applying aiki on the training partner), be it passively (being throw, joint locked). Both modes of practice should train the 'power pathways' inside the body.
wouldn't this required uke to be a great deal more skill, internal skilled, than tori since uke controlled the interaction?
