On a side, I think that I've seen times when nage throws uke, and the uke is in more balance the entire time than nage ever was.

Is this the norm in training for some of you? In our way of dealing with things, if Uke has his balance your chances of throwing/pinning him are slim to none (you are also begging to be thrown by a counter tech as well), though he may regain his balance after being thrown (i.e. be able to perform ukemi etc). Also, I think it would be very difficult for Tori to complete any technique if some superior degree of balance were not maintained on his own part. In this case Tori would probably end up throwing himself instead of Uke.
Hi Larry;

How do you think sutemi waza fits into your riposte?
