Re: Poll: For the basic version of tenchinage, what kind of fall do you think is more appropriate?

True, uke should not be able to take a forward roll if tenchinage is being done properly, but if uke lets go with the lower hand early on and edges away (not good ukemi IMO), they can usually roll out. Some ukes will go to great lengths to take whatever kind of fall they have in mind before the actual throw.
