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

Backroll has its problems too. Tori is moving forward quite rapidly and will pretty much be on top of you the whole time. A backroll puts you in a much weaker position for a good chunk of time. Best have a pair of legs between you and nage than an exposed back.
