Re: Ukemi for hiji shime/rokkyo

The ukemi all depends on the way the technique is applied.
1) Spin as Ron said if nage tenkans {usual Yoshinkan version}.

2) Drop down as Peter said if nage goes straight down to the mat {usual Aikikai version}.

3) Jump back quickly and lay your stomach flat on the mat if nage uses your arm like an oar {think of the guy who pushes the gondola in Venice, Italy}.
