Re: Ryote Tori Tips & Tricks (I Need Help)

For shihonage what has always worked best for me to keep my hands in the proper alignment is to essentially glue them to my forehead as I enter and turn.
To make sure I have uke's balance before entering and turning, I put my "free" hand at uke's elbow and gently turn it away until uke rises from his center.
