Christian,

I do thank you for posting the video. Openness is the only way we will advance our art.

But I hope you don't actually think you were working against resitance. Your uke was totally compliant and I can't say that there was any dynamic quality to what you demonstrated.

I don't mean to sound harsh, but I think it's time we start looking at where we are going with our training.
Not that Chris needs defending, but I think it's safe to say that the video was done as such to illustrate the mechanics at work.

If you want someone moving at a faster speed and with more "dynamics" using those mechanics do a search for Aunkai & Akuzawa
