Re: dealing with uke from hell

Of course you can also always say Onegaishemasi...to Sensei and tell him you seem to be having problems doing the technique
Yeah, if you're not sure if Sensei has a preference on how you handle things, this is probably the best idea, IMO. Raise your hand and just say you're having a little trouble getting this technique to work, and could he watch and give you some tips. He will see what's happening and will either show you how to do the technique better so uke can't resist, or show you a way to change the technique or do a different technique instead, or take uke and tell them to move differently (I don't suggest you do this yourself if you don't think uke would welcome such advice from you - it's far better coming from the teacher), etc.
