on the other hand, uke needs to practice ukemi too.
hopefully you can strike a balance.
as uke you can learn by resistance training; it helps nage more IMO but it also helps to understand why uke moves
as uke you also need to learn to ride the technique to a safe conclusion, and training for this can err on the side of tanking.
in my mind training can be like finding the balance point on a stick, you approach from either side but the sweet spot is precisely in the balance point,
in any case I think much frustration can be avoided by communicating with uke about what you want.
