If I sense a weak/timid technique or a strong but unfocused one, I as uke can do many things: I could try to resist it, or reverse it, or just take the fall, either an spectacular looking breakfall, or a relaxed back roll, but which one really benefits nage? Uke´s role has more input over nage´s actions than we (at first) suspect, so uke must be sensitive, not passive, to nage´s attempt at a technique.
