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.

The Chinese characters are 後方転倒, where 後方 kouhou means backwards and 転倒 tentou means falling. However, it is not a waza, if waza is understood to be something like irimi-nage or shihou-nage. As Janet states, it is 運動 undou: movement.
