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

I share Boon's difficulty.

After the initial two handed kuzushi there is a definite attacking the body component to the throw. Very little room for uke to turn and throw themselves into any sort of forward role at least during the contact phase.

Pretty hard to follow the earth hand down when there is a body inconveniently in the way.
