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

Thanks for the explanation Bronson. I think the second attack you describe is more like our version.

As I hoped...I learn something about the way others practice.
