I've heard a story related to this...
I was training at Honbu once. A new shodan, I was being frustrated by a strong 5 kyu, a friend who was not trying to be a jerk, during a KOKYU technique. The teacher walked by, I caught his attention, and demonstrated the problem. He hesitated a moment, frowned, did one of those light you're-being-naughty-slaps on UKE's forehead, and walked away.
I'd thought I'd been doing something wrong, but it WAS uke's fault! Hot damn!
