Re: Shihonage roll-out

In my experience, there are two broad types of shiho nage; the type that throws you down, and the type that throws you away.

By down, I mean right-the-explitive-down, to where your heel is. Round, but down.
By away, I mean towards the wall. Round, but away.

The former, when done well, goes straight into a pin.
The latter, less so.

My $0.02 CDN, now worth the same as US$.
