ok, it's official, my ryotedori ushiro kaiten nage both omote and ura suck big time and I have to get this right before grading . Come to think of it, a lot of my ushiro techniques suck but that one is my least favourite move as it combines my two least favourite things: ushiro attacks and kaiten nage responses. I do two main things wrong: one is that I don't stretch out my hands above the height of my head far enough so that uke is overbalanced and the other is that I don't cut down uke's wrist near the ground. I need a lot of practice just to get used to how it feels and to feel out the right way of doing it.
I think I also need to practice my ryotedori ushiro shihonage which I was completely fumbled last grading.
