Re: Effective udekimenage against resistance
I was taught that taking ukemi is using the escape provided in the technique.
When doing this technique one should not wait to be thrown: you would not in fact be thrown, your arm would break, that is why you use the escape. Without being a divebunny!
We also set off trying for shihonage, but aite stretches/extends his arm so bending it for shihonage is (near) impossible and then do udekimenage.
So I think the Shihan protected you when you did not move (take ukemi).
