Could NOT wrap my brain around katatedori kaitenage for anything tonite and driving home I realised that I had only ever practiced the ura (tenkan) version and never even realised there was an omote(irimi) version that is a little like nikkyo omote and I was getting all kinds of tied in knots cuz I couldn't figure out why I didn't know what I was doing. Now I have to remember Not to do that one on the test, until I get to Variations, during which I will probably default to iriminage & kotegaeshe along with kaitenage ura as I already have them from three attacks and default them during jiyuwaza anyway...
Did a nice little jiyuwaza tonite with Carlos & Bill, nice & slow and I totally managed to not get into "deer in the headlights" mode which is how I usually do jiyuwaza.I'm still nt going into the attack but I'm not staring in their eyes, I'm moving my feet & not running away as much.
But yeah. much panic.

hey can you do ikkyo from morotedori? cool.
