Re: Article: Aiki Syntax, Part 3: Uke by Ross Robertson

Hi Ross,
I like the concept.If I ever will be near you, I'll take my time and visit you.

Yet some concept read somewhat strange and I guess, I can understand on the mat.

However I am totaly confused by your definition of uke and nage/tori. from my understanding ukemi, means "to take", that would imply that uke is the one that "inhalates", while nage "exhalates".

That does not change really anything, I just would say, that uke starts as a nage and turns to uke during technique and vice versa.

By the way, are you planning to visit "good old Europe"? Could be interesting to show us your ideas in a seminar.

Unfortunately I am not in the position to organise one, but if you are coming, please publish in Aikiweb. I would not like to miss it just because I was not informed.

Kind regards Dirk

Hi Dirk,

Indeed we often do change roles during a single technique. This makes it difficult to say this person is uke, that person is tori. It really depends on which way the energy is flowing at any given moment.

As for visiting Europe, of course I'd love to! As an independent instructor (no current affiliation) it's a bit harder sometimes, as dojo often have obligations to instructors in their own systems. But naturally I'd love to have the chance to share what I know with anyone who is interested.

By all means, if an opportunity arises, let me know! Meanwhile, if you ever find yourself in the Austin, Texas area, please know that our doors are open to you.

Many thanks for the kind words.

Ross
