I love it. That is optimal contact. No gap between the two, nowhere through the technique.
It happens already when uke focuses on tori with the intent of attacking. Contact is established, and should remain.
I guess you can compare it to training in water. The atmosphere is so thick with contact that any movement is felt throughout.
