Re: Being an Uke/Nage

That is my experience too, especially with beginners. Most have no clue where to move to in order to prevent pain. Others accept the pain, because hey we do a martial art and that has got to hurt, right?
It takes effort to get that out of their system first.

And there is the group that likes to test you....always good fun!

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
