Re: Tips for shomen uchi ikkyo ura? anyone?

I mean, first, we practice omote. Then, we practice ura. We start off almost doing omote, but this time, uke puts their hand on nage's ELBOW which prevents nage from going in front of uke. I guess this creates a situation where it would be better to go behind uke instead of across their front (they have to much power or you're too late and they are very strong coming down or...)

I'm taller than most people in the class, so i always feel like it's hard for me get below/behind that arm to get offline.
