Re: Being overly complacent as Uke

I think all of you have described what an uke should do, albeit in different situations and to different degrees. I just want to add that when I have trained with very good ukes, it has been like trying to hold a snake by the tail. They don't go dead after they attack. They allow themselves to be led, but at the same time, they remain aware of their own balance and how they are able to move. Whether they reverse the technique or strike etc depends on the level of nage and the type of training we are doing.
