Why should uke stand up when he can counter from down there?
Dear Alejandro,
If uke is bent over and Tori is behind uke how does Uke counter attack?Apart from that if Uke was trying to counter why not just guide his head into the tatami [in the nicest possible way]? This I think would divert Ukes intent to counter since Uke would be to busy trying to maintain a classic profile.I would suggest it is bit difficult to counter anybody when your noggin is potentially ready to be harmonising with the ground/tatami.
cheers, Joe.
