Re: Question about omote and ura...
I will second Gaia's remark (that's a cool name, by the way): you are training at a truly "elite" dojo, with a fantastic instructor. I'm sure the sempai/sensei there could not only define the terms, but help you understand their meaning.
As for my guess? Well, we don't say omote or ura in Yoshokai, we just say "#1" (~omote?) and "#2" (~ura). I think I'm starting to figure out why techniques are classified the way they are. The common phrase we use at our dojo is "#1 is reversing uke's direction, #2 is keeping them going the same direction."
