In my expirence when my sensei says my throwing was good in randori I dont feel a dang thing.

As uke I tend to think myself as a rag doll.
Agreed. One of the hardest thing for me to get my head around was that when I did the technique right, I didn't feel it. I am a big man and tend to feel the force of what I am doing. Aikido was the opposite. It was almost a "not" feel.

As uke, I just get up and go at them again until Sensei says stop. That's all I tend to think about it.

Until again,
