Re: Newbies should struggle?

Don,
It seems silly to me too, but there might <might> be some useful points that were trying to be "shared" with uke, or general principles...
***NOTE: I HAVE NO LINK WITH, NOR PRETEND TO UNDERSTAND, HOW CHIBA SENSEI TEACHES.***
1. Don't leave yourself open as the attacker. Why? See slapping video.
2. Atemi can be very useful. How? See slapping video.
3. Ma-ai (sp?) is very important for both partners. Again, refer to video.

It does beg the question; who was the attacker in this case?
