Aleksey, I'm not trying to be rude, but other than maybe your uncle, did have a chance to try randori against assorted judo yudansha? I think judging judo by how you do against the mudansha might not be very helpful in evaluating judo..
The teacher did show me some things and his technique was a lot less jerky and more graceful than his students.
Once he took the balance he had me under control and then he could do something akin to Aikido's spiral taking-of-more-and-more balance.
On the other hand, I AM a mudansha in Aikido, so I guess it would make sense to compare to Judo yudansha if I was one myself.
