Re: Cultivating a mind for training honestly.

I think you should invest in George Ledyard Sensei's Basics video (or any of his DVD's actually). He clearly explains the role of uke and what their INTENTION should be as uke, the potential consequences of deviating from the "form", and (as David mentioned) you can still go slow (and hit your partner) if you have the proper intent..... Dean, I've found George's explanations ones that are very easy to demonstrate and explain to my students too.

Best,

Russ
