I finally figured out why I was haveing suck a hard time drawing uke up into Nikyu. as it turns out I need to get more of a circular lifting motion before I place ukes wrist on my shoulder. It seems to pull uke into the right position for Nikyu. Before I was just trying to pull uke straight to my shoulder causeing his arm to extend and stay there making me lose that S in nages arm. Just by lifting the arm higher than my shoulder before planting his wrist on my shoulder seems to bring uke around enough to force him to make that S in his arm. My timeing for the up, down, Nikyu is becoming more fluid.

For Sankyu my up down timeing is improving for that as well. I just have to remember to step in behind uke for tenkan so I'm out of the way of uke's fall. I also feel I have to use less of a forced sword cut motion and more of a lead the uke by the fingers motion when droping uke to the floor.

I'm looking forward to training this weekend. Our Nidan is coming in from Seattle. I'm going to ask him his opinion on what I should be working on for my Sankyu test.
