Re: Being overly complacent as Uke

I actually find uke stalling out (I've attacked so have done my part what now? ) to be a bigger problem than uke being overly complacent. The overly complacent uke is in my view just not understanding and is easier to correct. The stalling out is or can be fear, confusion, not knowing how to attack, or the old, you didn't move me so I will never move! We spend a lot of time trying to get uke's to act as if they were really attacking, not doing stop and start. Even at more senior levels this can sometimes be a problem. And by the way I am guilty sometimes myself, sigh. It is old thinking ahead instead of being in the moment and responding to what is happening NOW.
