No,

Because I would never trash into the mat anyone who couldn't take it. What happens is those who put themselves forward to Uke without that ability! It is not the Sensei's fault in those situations, but the UKe, as those demonstrations require an Uke who can acceppt full on technique, and if they put their hand up to being that Uke, that is their issue!!! Uke needs to know there limits too!

Osu!
