Hopefully for future elaborations (if I ever finally find more time!) We've been doing a fair amount of new techniques (well, for me) lately...

- started with Ushiro Ryotekubidori Jiyujinage (Suwari Waza); need to lean back at same time as push forward and also push forward and to the side more than upwards
- a variety of Kokyunage from Ushiro attacks (one-handed grab to the collar --- Japanese name unknown): a couple of Kokyunages, another, very Judo-like throw that starts very much like Ushiro ukemi but ends with a rocking motion and a kick as you throw uke back over you
Technique generalities/principles to remember:
- mostly moving at an arc to the side instead of straight back
- leaning forward with whole body to stretch uke out
- sinking hips during the turns into throws helps
- need to push harder

- Shomenuchi Sankyo (Suwari Waza)
- a variety of techniques from Shomenuchi attack with an opening of moving to an outside block: one that goes down like a Nikkyo Osae, another that goes into Yonkyo, and a Kokyunage (remember to sink down while using hips; it's more of a sideways torque on the arm)
