Re: The meaning of omote and ura

For those who don't speak Japanese, you can remember the difference between omote and ura by the following:
Omote : you should be able to look at uke's entire face "O"
Ura : you should be able to virtually view uke's "U"ranus {I just came up with this}
normally at my dojo we are taught that you should be able to look inside uke's ear
