Re: The techniques of Budo Renshuu #50-60

Hey. For the impromptu nature, those didn't turn out bad!

Technique #54, shiho nage with ushiro eri dori assist, is a powerful technique. I have good ukemi and seldom feel frightened during techniques, no matter how hard I am being thrown. In the videos, Chris wasn't throwing particularly hard, but I will say that I felt my cranium heading towards the ground in a way that I found somewhat alarming.
