Re: Shihonage Ukemi

I'm not fan of either. In both they are giving up their connection to nage. :/

I think the video I posted is more like what Ellis was describing. You turn your body with the nage, to let yourself down for either a gradual wide-legged decent to the mat, or you are lined up for a variety of forward rolls, or a breakfall.

In the video you posted,I see why they do it, but for my purposes I don't see why they give up their connection to nage so easily.
