IMO, nage needs to attack the attack and take uke's center while keeping their own - in essence, they become the attacker and stay that way until they decide to stop the exchange - uke has no say in it while their center is not theirs.
isn't aiki making nage and uke one unit, sort of a four-legged animal, like a donkey? if one unit, where is the attack?
