Re: randori with superuke

Your positioning can make a big difference here, to even out the time between ukes coming in.

Sometimes it's also better doing something a technique that requires a koho ukemi (like irimi tsuki, irimi nage or ushiro nage) than something like kokyu nage or kote gaeshi, which call for zenpo kaiten ukemi.
Most people tend to spring up from a forward roll/flip more quickly than they do from being dumped backwards.
