Neither uke nor nage is always right.

There are uke's who purposely give attacks which look the same on the surface but are only suitable for a technique DIFFERENT from the one you're supposed to practice.

This leads to back-and-forth trickery which can eventually degenerate into a wrestling match.

There are nages who always try to throw uke more energetically than the uke threw them when they were nage, to somehow "justify" the difference in rank.
