Can anyone believe it is good martial arts practice to present your rear to an uke in the hope that he takes your wrist.

Obviously everyone here practices differently and usually they have a reason for the way they do things.
As a counterpoint to the first statement and reinforcement of the second: In Seidokan our ushiro attacks come from behind. The thinking is that Uke approached you from behind so you didn't have the opportunity to move to a better position ie. facing uke.

We have a separate type of attack called Ushiromawari+(attack) that denotes Uke coming from the front or side and attempting to get around to your back.

Aren't stylistic differences grand
