Re: randori with superuke

My sensei says that to stop ukes bouncing up too quickly, you must make sure you throw them down into the mat. If you try to throw them away or high, you give them a little upwards flick that allows them to get up much more quickly. At it's most extreme, uke can flip right back onto their feet from your throw, and then you're in trouble!
