Sigh...here we go. Seeing as I skipped doing this for Tuesday night's test technique, I might as well just lump it in with tonight's. I know it's dull, but I also know that I should do it, and it's not like it's deserving of being a "private" entry either. I mean, as if I have any oh-so-secret techniques of martial mastery to hide from the rest of you. Hehehe...even if I did...if I told you, I'd have to kill you. Mwahahahaha! Ahem --- I mean, oops! Did that slip out? That wasn't very "Way of Harmony" of me, was it now?


Yokomenuchi Kotegaeshi:
- Enter in directly, but instead of blocking uke's striking hand (and stopping it), lead it downwards somewhat, then continue this downward motion with a sweeping cut using the other hand
- Then...thank goodness the rest is just like the regular Kotegaeshi we've done before. You know the drill. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

Ushiro Ryotekubidori Shihonage (the dynamic version --- Now with Extra Flow!):
- Remember to open "bait" hand outwards during initial leading of uke around, then bring it into centre before direction change (when second hand is grabbed)
- Distinction between Omote and Ura --- don't forget to step across/bring uke's arm across his body, which constitutes Omote; it feels more natural and flowing to do this with whole body (time this with step forward) while you are already swinging uke's arm upwards. I don't seem to be having much of a problem with Ura at all, because it feels so automatic not to step across and just blend/go to the rear.
- Then, the rest is just like...well, regular Shihonage (thank goodness).

There. Now that wasn't so painful, was it?
(Well, at least for Nage...)
