Moving forward

Yes, I believe that the fundamental principle of taninzugake, several uke attacking simultaneously, is never to retreat. You have to move forward, in continuous taisabaki turns of your body. Once you start backing, you will be swarmed by the attackers.
When you keep on moving forward, you are literally ahead.
