Craig: When i say training as usual i mean training in the dojo in a regular class with a teacher. and of course he gave us some tips but i wanted to hear what others maybe with different experience thought.

Peter: 1:i tried to be out of range for the jab, just as my teacher suggested but some of the time my uke just closed in before he made the attack. So i had to choose if i should stand still or begin stepping backwards. I donīt want to step backwards because in my experience ju are in big trouble when you do that.

2: i did that a couple of times, did a technique on the first jab. But as you say: jabs are often without much commitment so it can be hard to take ukes balance without adding muscle. Especially if uke is a lot bigger than you.

Thank you for the replys.
