1 I've seen in in both dojo I've been training in here.
NAGE: The wonderful looks of horror on uke's face (but it seems like a last ditch chance to me.)
UKE: Makes you improve your spontaneity.
3 Uke recovers his feet before nage. Also, I'm a klutz so discount accordingly, but I always seem to pull uke's shin into my groin.
4. After breakfalls are mastered.
