During our last dojo practice, our insructor, Claire Sensei, had us practicing various ushiro techniques. First-things-first:
Consider the 2nd Hand
- these techniques involve uke grabbing your 1st hand from behind, then continues around to grab nage's 2nd hand
- from this second hand, available to the nage is Shihonage, Kotegaeshi, various Kokyu-ho techniques, kaitenage, iriminage
Consider the 1st Hand
- from this 1st hand, available to the nage is ikkyo, nikkyo, sankyo, yonkyo, iriminate, hand grab switch for kotegaeshi or gluteus sitdown
I'm sure I'm missing some from the above as my memory is short these days. Our practice also consited of the uke running behind the nage, so we did not practice ushiro ryote dori or kubi shime.
