Ian, we didn't disagree: you just clarified what I was thinking. *grin*
Shihonage is one of my favorite techniques and I _do_ pull it off with some ease during randori. Sure, it does not work all the time and I've ended on my back as uke ushiro ate me but most of the time, uke falls.
Irimi nage is one of those technique I love but cannot manage in randori for the life of me. Probably because I don't understand it as well as I should. Any idea from as to how to improve it on resisting targets?
