nikkyo: keep control at the end by leaning uke's pinned wrist against the crook of nage's shoulder while transfering hands
sankyo: keep control in the middle by pushing uke's arm up immediately after the inital ikkyo like pin down, then transferring hold to other hand. I've been shifting my hands without doing this which means there's an opening.
yongkyo: rotate uke's wrist inward so that fingers are pointing towards uke's body immediately after initial ikkyo move. Then transfer hands and apply pressure point lock.
gokyo: push into the shoulder and don't really need to change hold on elbow. instructor pointed out I have a tendency to lift that hold to turn uke's arm but in this hold there's no real need.
irimi nage: the classical end is to have uke land where he started. And I need to stop side stepping away so fast.
ushiro: I'm getting slightly (key word being slightly ) better at the footwork but still need a lot of practice generally with these techniques. Today we tried ushiro irmi. It did however give me a chance to practice stepping out of the hold and ensuring I go low enough and turn enough to break uke's hold. My dan level partner was pointing out I didn't break his hold near enough to the ground where he's the weakest.
