David. I would say there is a remarkable resemblance to how he returns to posture with arms as you say (sometimes) and tenshinage.
"Resemblance," yes. But since there is usually no one near at the moment he takes that posture, the ukes having just flown some distance away, why would he assume the posture of tenchinage?

How so?
