Maybe it doesn't make sense in a martial way to persue a technique which is blocked by uke
One would start to use force to go somewhere aite does not want to go (any longer).

There are so many many ways to adapt ones technique to ukes behavior. So I myself think, it is much to be learned through those blocking manouvers of uke.
This is only different practise/intend. To understand why you cannot (yet) do the technique you initially intended is equally important. Aite should not be able to block. This indicates somewhere along the line aite regained balance.

In a real fight:
* If you make a bad decision, you die.
* If you don't decide anything, you die.
Aikido teaches you how to decide.
