I had my 2.nd Kyu test on Monday. I demonstrated the techniques on a guy, whom I had practised with just 1 or 2 times. I was asked to do kata dori (ikkyo-nikkyo-sankyo and yonko). But the guy was holding really hard, and resisted while I was trying to do my technique...
as Ron said "punch in nose"
I just touched his chin softly
it worked, I walked in for ikkyo but resistance again. You know, in "classical" ikkyo, you do 2 steps (push his arm to his head and pull it while walking on the different direction)...he did not let me do that and I forced to lie him, directly where I was standing...
result; sensei told me to tread my uke kinder
(I could not blame - "he is resisting", could I ?)
I resist while practising when I think that he is doing wrong. I do not like saying "you are doing it wrong". What's more, if he is performing the technique correct - resisting does not work anyway.
PS: I passed the test
