Worked with Rick on test stuff. Sensei came by and helped me with Tai No Henko Kihno Nagare (IN Motion). He explained that where the uke grabs me determines how much force there is that builds up as I move in a circle toward the uke. Also important was where I made the middle of my circle. Closer to the point that the Uke connection was less toward the uke that I needed to move. There was a balance between taking the ukes balance a little and just letting them go by. Taking their balance in a marshal situation was necessary to make them think about the fact that you had done more than just get out of the way.

In Shiho Nage, Sensei changed the way that both Rick and I were stepping on the second step so that we were much more behind the Uke. This allowed us to have a safe arm angle for the uke without having to do a little slide step right before the throw. This was amazing! It felt so much better! It was also much safer as there was no way the Uke could even see you, let alone land a punch or kick.
