Re: True victory?

Two of the responses to the OP speculated that uke may get ego gratification from stopping a technique. I think that explanation is unlikely. Most folks I've run into get enjoyment and satisfaction out of their partner's technique working and just a sense of bafflement when higher ranked nages can't get a technique to work.

The seeming consensus of blaming uke for technique not working just seems wrong to me btw.
