Re: Confused... Uke Ready to Jump?

If an uke is taking ukemi, then some degree of collusion is taking place. This can be appropriate as a learning tool for a nage trying to learn techniques. A throwing technique done properly is one in which the uke has no choice as to taking ukemi; it simply happens.
