Re: Direction for Projecting Energy

It's about balance. You keep your balance as nage and uke loses his balance, then you have control of uke's body. Nage keeps balance by staying grounded and uke loses balance by being ungrounded. If you project energy to the the ground through uke's body you are rebalancing uke. Nage projects energy to ground outside of uke's body.

Two good overhead views that may be helpful.

Go ahead, tread on me.
