Re: VOE: Active Resistance

Hi Steven,

Examples of active resistance for me include uke's feeling what nage is doing and directly opposing it, using "muscle" to overpower nage's technique, and generally doing what it takes to "thwart" was nage is trying to accomplish.

Of course, there may be other examples of such -- these are just a few that came to mind...

Thanks Jun .. I'll need to chew on this for a bit, but look forward to other folks thoughts.
