Do you have anything like this as nage?
In fact I do, but as sh'te, as we call it, I don't feel as if you get the same effect as when you're uke. As uke, it certainly requires more TRUST, which in itself requires you to be relaxed. That make sense?!?

When you do this, look to see how tentative uke is. At first, there is usually a sense of uncertainty. You'll see it in their posture and the way they move (flow). Funny to watch too.

Let me know how it works out ....
