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

Has anyone given thought to the technique not only being done irimi style, but also with a tenkan turn? With a forcefull, pushing uke, you can perform tenchinage while you tenkan. This will almost always result in uke taking a front roll or break fall.
This is one of the ki no nagare versions I mentioned earlier. I have also practiced a variant where tori steps back, little of the line to "draw out ukes balance" and then re-enters strongly with tenchinage. That version can also lead pretty easy into a high fall, mae ukemi or "ushiro mae ukemi" depending on how itīs done.
