Re: Poll: How often do you strongly resist your partner's technique as uke during aikido training?

A friend of mine tells his students, "Knock 'em down and make it look like aikido."

Saito speaks briefly of resisting UKE's in one of his early books. He suggests you "treat UKE a little unkindly" and step on his instep and pivot into TENKAN.
