Re: Poll: For the basic version of tenchinage, what kind of fall do you think is more appropriate?
The question is, what do you consider a basic tenchi nage. At the beginning I practised tenchi nage with ushiro ukemi, but to allow uke to do this, you have to open the technique befor the throw. With more experienced ukes its mae ukemi, or a forward breakfall.
Basically we refer to this ukemi as a forward-backward roll.
