FWIW, I didn't find the video Janet posted particularly convincing. It looks to me -- especially in the third segment -- like uke could stand upright and recover her balance quite easily. Think about why, and what nage might do to fix the problem.

Quite agree - It's a very good example of why I think in many dojos this is often not a very productive exercise - except in training overly compliant ukes.
