Re: What's With All the Pushing?

For me, when I'm working on striking components, in referencing to what George as written, I feel it more beneficial to work with uke running into that set of components. This is in opposition to having uke be at the end of my range of motion and me just pushing at him (as I saw in the video posted above).
This makes total sense to me and fits completely with what I try to do and what I teach.
