Thanks so much for stealing this. I've been thinking about a class like this for quite a while, and it's nice to get some insight from someone that has already walked the road.

One question: what is "Koho tento waza"? I've never heard the term.

Conrad
I can answer, and add a question for Janet. Koho tento is when you drop and roll backwards, from hip to shoulder, very gently. We usually do a few rolls from suwari, then a few more into handachi, and finally into tachi as a warm up before we do the more intensive rolling and sutemis.

For Janet though, I am wondering if you do more than that, since I haven't heard koho tento used with waza after it.
