Re: Nage vs Tori?

Robin is right nage comes from throw so it would not really be technically accurate to use it for immobilization techniques.

Shité is used in some dojos. It means something like the main protagonist or leading rôle.

Tori is the active partner or the one who seizes control. Only tori and uke are used in judo kata terminology.

we can make our minds so like still water, and so live for a moment with a clearer, perhaps even with a fiercer life
