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

Hi all,

I voted for a back fall because that's what I have been shown, and the majority of ukemi for tenchi nage (basic) at my dojo is just that. However, as I have been learning to keep a better connection I have been tending toward a forward roll or breakfall on tenchinage ura...
I love this stuff... there's always more to learn or another perspective to appreciate!

-Will
