Another thing I noticed was that kuzushi was applied incorrectly. A lot of the techniques that I saw, ukes balance was given back to them in the execution of the technique. Now, was this done so that uke could take ukemi properly...perhaps. The impression I was left was nages mind...that's how the technique works. If actually applied in a quote "real situation"...would it work. Maybe...maybe not, but it did make me think to myself and ask the question "Is too much cooperation a bad thing".

Have any of you actually thought about a technique and analyzed it (with a training partner, another dojo, or a practitionor of another art) to see why it did work? Or, why it didn't work? I would be interested to hear what others have experienced.
