So you know,..... the next question to be asked (i know too wordy to be answered online) but how is the problem of ukemi to reconciled?
I just got corrected about this today(not giving my center up
to the four legged animal) and I am not trying to be a Budo D@#k.
Great as usual food for thought.
I like to look at it this way - as uke, you don't up your center to nage; you give nage an opportunity to take it. Of course, how much opportunity will depend on the skill level of both parties - more skill, less opportunity, etc. This is how uke and nage can help each other learn without collusion and over cooperation - IMO, of course
