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

I voted for back fall (koho ukemi). I was never taught any other fall of this technique other than koho ukemi.

Just out of curiosity... how does one do mae ukemi for this throw? I am baffled.

I think this has been discussed before in ukemi threads, for I remember explaining somewhere how I do a 'forward' roll backwards and without turning the head. This is not the same as a 'clothesline' ukemi, by the way.

Best regards,
