Omote roughly means "that which can be seen" while ura means "that which cannot be readily seen".

In that vein, my dojo uses omote to mean those techniques which are executed in front of uke. I.e., those which uke "can see".

We use ura to mean those techniques which are executed in back of uke. I.e., those which uke "can not readily see".


Best Regards,
This information will come in handy. Thanks Greg
