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.
What about in the instance that nage takes the leading hand very low to the mat, and further behind ukes body than the other hand; in naturally twists uke and puts them very close body-wise to a forward roll.

Not a setup per se, but its not ncessarily poor technique on behalf of nage either...
