I was always taught that:

1) Uke shouldn't track Tori.

2) Uke has to take a recovery step.

Generally, as long as uke does this, it is satisfactory for a commited attack.
Sure, when you're first learning techniques, you give tori advantages to start with. But surely eventually you get to the point where it's tori's job to prevail even if uke is tracking tori, and tori's job to make uke take a recovery step?


Be polite. Be professional. But have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
