The better my ukemi gets, the less nikyo hurts me.

Still it's important not to go down before nage gets a chance to fully apply the technique, as that will limit his ability to learn.

My first job as uke is to protect myself, and I'm not letting someone twice my size crank on my wrists until he convinces himself that he's got it right.
I understand that all of you practice nikyo in such a way that uke can decide to "leave" the contact by "going down"? Is this acutally possible for uke in your way of doing nikyo if tori does not want to let him go?
