I can understand why you'd say that to a degree ..but its not what I'd expect from a lower kyu grade.

I'd expect them to be able to demonstrate what they'd been taught in lessons.

I'd also expect Uke to give the requested attack unless some form of jiyuwaza or randori were taking place.

Maybe its just me...but my view has always been that if uke is free to vary the attack then naturally tori is free to deploy any response.

Including atemi.

All in the spirit of harmony of course.


Dear Daren
Punch the guy on the snitch [in a caring manner ]with a smile on your face?My favourite ploy!!Hows old Kenny R?
Cheers, Joe.
