A reasonable reply from the uke could be:
"You may want to move away from inward looking, navel gazing approach where i am to follow *your* intent, and start practicing martial art which requires you to accept the reallity of the interaction with the attacker and work on *that*.
If anyone had said that to me when I was a beginner, and just trying to wrap my mind around a technique, I'd have concluded that this person was an insufferably smug jerk who was much more interested in their own ego-aggrandizement than in being a useful and helpful partner. This is just a veneer of superiority on top of jerk behavior.
