    No touch throws are as lame as no touch KO's. That is all.

    Having to take the glue off every night most be very irritative. I think the whole thing is a helmet (with ponytail and everything) :new_rainf

    What really intrigues me is the first picture's expression, he's like "God, why do I have to be here with this bunch of losers when I could be at home scratching my balls".

    Just wondering to anyone who's done aikido when you start training do they get pissed off if you don't run at them and overcommit to the "attack" enough? (because then they would fail thier "throw"). How do they start getting people to throw themselves to the ground in oder to make the instructor look good? Share your experiances on "uke assisted grappling".

    Well, to be honest there are people who actually expect you to run at them like a frantic crazy and not to attack like a real martial artist. Practically all of them lack good technique and get used to depend on those tricks. How can you tell, because their basic, solid, slow motion technique is also crappy.
    You have to remember though that when practicing, your partner knows exactly what technique you are about to do and he's obviously allowing you to do it for the sake of practice, in other words, he is acting out the situation where you would be able to apply that particular technique so you can learn how to do it, and just like acting if you overact or act too little is simply not good acting. This is why being uke is considered and art in itself, it’s not only about receiving the technique, which when exaggerated results in the over compliant uke, which is only worried about his own safety, it’s also about making the situation adequate for nage to learn, which when exaggerated results in the extremely hard uke that doesn’t allow you to do any technique at all, even at the expense of exposing himself during the technique. Both situations provide no learning.
    About the overcommitment, you are also kind of right, but it is usually seen when grabbing. We expect people to grab and keep grabbing on situations where most people would simply let go. This is just based on the supposition that, should a weapon (knife, sword…) be involved in the fight, letting the hand go (which supposedly carries the weapon) would lead to a very, very unfavorable outcome for uke.
    How do we get them to throw themselves?, showing them the consequences of not doing so. I mean, it’s completely up to the person to do the ukemi we teach or collapsing against the floor like any regular, untrained guy. For some reason most people choose doing the ukemi.
    Do we get mad if they don't fall?. Some people do, intelligent people realize that there is a gap in their technique (provided uke is being realistic) and train to correct it.
