Re: Shihonage Ukemi

I think you are looking at an extreme and taking Rab somewhat out of context. His first statement was the most poignant to this discourse...that uke and shi'te work cooperatively. Each share equal responsibility in what is happening...though uke is placing his trust a bit more to nage as he is the 'doer' of the technique. I think Rab's point was that the extreme view of safety on the part of the uke is illogical...that its a shared experience.

Ichi Go, Ichi Ei!
