Re: Article: The Nature of Ukemi by George S. Ledyard

Quote:
If uke is adjusting constantly to nage's energy and nage is adjusting to uke's energy, who controls the interaction? This is the essential koan of Aikido.
The moment nage and uke connect their energies combine and the interaction becomes simply action. In the absence of control the action is allowed to unfold naturally to its logical conclusion.
