...We do this to better understand how atari works and to better understand the osae waza. Endo sometimes shows this.

If someone doesn't try to get up or move away nothing just happens and he will not feel what could have happened.
Took a few ukeme for Endo shihan in Shanghai last week, took me a couple of attacks to realize that he did not want me to "surrender" to him. It was either resisting the pin or continuing to attack him when he released the pin. He was demonstrating the point that there is no aikido without connection (atari) [I gather from that statement that he does not believe in no-touch throws ].
