Re: Ukemi: pluses and minuses

Yes. The Prince of Darkness was using someone from our dojo as uke at our recent seminar. He had engaged with the guy and then paused to make some point, when he suddenly turned to Sensei and said, approximately, "Not only are you a budo jerk, you're raising budo jerks. As soon as he senses an opening, he's all over me." Which is the point. You don't bail just because you're uke.

Evolution doesn't prove God doesn't exist, any more than hammers prove carpenters don't exist.
