Re: your number one technique
well I was shoved to the ground recently during randori. . He put his hands on my chest and tried to shove me down. I grabbed his hands did a nice back fall and rolled completely over. He landed on his back and i landed kneeling next to him and still had a hold of his hand to my chest. After realizing what had just happened and that I still had his arm I immediately put my knee under his elbow and sat down.... HAHA I thought to myself that was sheer luck! I am completely inexperienced in randori. I just rememered this guys previous lecture about if you see an elbow then bend it however you can. so I did.
