Randori with blindfolds is an excellent way to practice, you don't realise how hesitant you become using your eyes and how you feel
your way into techniques; minimising risk.
When blindfolded there is no halfway, if you want to throw with uchimata you need to wholeheartedly perform the technique, and as uke can't see it coming they need to use feel to defend it.
The first time we tried this I was at a real disadvantage and have since learned a lesson, I was being chucked by judoka who don't normally get me off the ground, you may like to think that you use feel during randori but until you have to defend a full blooded harai in the dark.....
Also, if you don't have any blindfolds just turn the lights off.
Kidding! Never turn the lights off!
Oh to see your face.
