Excellent class worked on Ryote Dori Shiho Nage, Sankyo, Yonkyo. Worked with Rick, Candice, worked after class with Niki on Sankyo, and got some great tips. One hold your hand steady in place, take the ukes balance, and as they come up they come into Sankyo, reach down and grab the fingers first. It is possible to get sankyo on this alone. Don't bend over once you have sankyo, and the cut is through your body, so you have to move your inside foot at the same time that you cut down. If you do the Ura correctly then you have the uke drop right in front of you. Ready to apply the pin.
I need some work on the swuri waza part of the whole thing still, hopefully I can get Noel to help me a bit more with that and ask him some questions about the test.
