Question Application of Nage/Uke

Are the terms nage and uke reserved for the practicing of formal technique encounters, or are they applicable for all Aikido practice which involves partners in atagonism? For instance, today in class we practiced the unbendable arm. Do the terms apply there, or is that simply practicing in partnership?

Thanks!

Re: Application of Nage/Uke

It depends on what your Sensei says, based on your training method, but the Tori/Nage/Shite - Uke relationship does not exist in all aspects of training.

In tanto randori for example (in Shodokan), the Tori - Uke relationship is replaced with Tanto and Toshu or "armed with a knife" and "unarmed" respectively and there is no role of attacker and defender, both can attack at will.
