So what is the difference you want to point out in regard to the video that startedt this thread?
Sorry, but I didn't get your point here.
Well the thread has evolved so perhaps the connection is not so direct between the videos at the beginning- but I think the degree of uke compliance is the most telling. The feeling I get with the Tomiki video is that uke is being done rather than uke doing. My general opinion is that with many demonstrations uke is working too hard to make tori look good.
