Let me throw this one out! I was replying to another thread here when I wrote:
"We had a short discussion where I contended that in higher practice nage doesn't pick the technique used on uke, rather uke does, because the attack of the moment really gives you the technique to do if you watch and sense the direction the energy is going. He said he thought you could determine the technique. I don't like that, because I think you then have to physically, artificially move uke into position to do "your" technique. But, I could be wrong. "
Sorry to quote myself, but the "copy" and "paste" thing was easier to do as I have to hit the road in a few minutes.
Please muse over this, and let me know, esp. Chuck, George, Jun, et al.
Thanks, have a good 4th, and I'll check in tonight!
