Re: Tips for shomen uchi ikkyo ura? anyone?

Make sure you aline your toes with ukes toes and blend around that point, if your enter past the toes uke should be to strong to move or the training is to weak. The founder toe to toe in budo. Although certain style just like to enter and turn and magicaly uke follows.
Also grab underneath the elbow so you can turn the arm over and make sure you cut with the hand holding the wrist.
At no point should ukes arm be close o your leg or its very easy to get swept or gripped in bad places.
