Yes, Josh

You must take uke's center by being just inside their space as they finish the step they were taking. By connecting and taking the slack out and then keeping the connection (keep the slack out) so uke is always responding to the common center that you (both of you) now have since you're "connected", you'll always have the initiative.

Sheesh...that's a mouthful, eh?
