Ageru - Give (あげる)



"Having the chance to be Uke for Soke is an Honor"

 

To us, the role of Uke is the " art of surrender ".
As uke, we take on the role of walking forward into death. With the correct mind, we can understand this as a lesson in Sutemi and developing the "guts" of the warrior. To be uke means to "give" yourself  to tori.
 
We must then have the "guts " to step aside of ourselves and become an empty tea cup ( if you will ) to recieve direct transmission from the body (Taiden 體傳) Sprit/Heart (Shinden 神殿) and Verbal lessons (Kuden 口傳).
