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

I'd say its upto uke, whatever they can do they should do.

But for the sake of the discussion, for the most basic tenchinage I would say a side/rear break fall is probably the best as it still allows tori to lock uke's hips out but is easier to perform than a flip/tobu ukemi. For a more advanced tenchi, then flip/tobu ukemi all the way, if it's neccessary.

They're all screaming about the rock n roll, but I would say that it's getting old. - REFUSED.
