Re: dealing with uke from hell

It might be worth discussing how not to BE the uke from hell. In my own ukemi practice, I give Shite a lot of feedback, so I am careful to be benevolent. Most Aikidoka probably do the same thing in their own way- not verbal feedback, but resisting in the right way and yielding in ways that seem to encourage proper application. If a pin is weak, I will give a little wiggle of the elbow or raise my shoulder enough for them to notice.

I absolutely take some dives, but will do a walkaway if a point can be made by it. They are throws, after all. Resisting wristlocks can get you in trouble if you have a very impatient Shite, but I will give them similar advice to what I posted above (on the Q.T.) and these two, if they ask:

#1. "We only get better at what we practice correctly." (credentialed) Grand Master, Dr. Nam K. Hyong.
#2. "Smooth is fast." Joe Thambu Shihan. So slow down and do it right.

Well, that's one word for it.

"Horses sweat, gentlemen perspire, and ladies glow."

Wink Re: dealing with uke from hell

I have never had an UFH before. I have had ukes that resisted way too much and did tell them 2 times to not resist so much but they didn't listen. The third time they were convinced they shoul've listened the first 2 times. And I am not talking about just white belts either as far as the UFH.

Horses sweat, men perspire and women glow???? I promise you after a good workout and 3-4 beers later, men glow too.
