Re: Shihonage Ukemi

I don't like either of those videos. I guess I do it how it is described by a few other people. I put my head towards my arm for support and turn slightly toward nage. Makes ukemi easier and I can take a breakfall if needed. Even if you don't take the breakfall, the ukemi is more roll-y instead of plopping right down on your back.
