Smile Re: Question about omote and ura...

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."[/QUOTE]
In my club we say "omote" and "ura", but more often "positive" (omote) and "negative" (ura). I wonder why.
