Do you really think that? It seemed quite effective to me. After all, the guys involved all seem to have been training for more than 6 months.
Yes, I really think that. I explained in a lot of detail what was wrong with it. Pushing in to uke is pretty much always a bad idea. If you are going to push down, you want that to only effect them from obi down, never from obi up.

Raul, I mean I can send my mental focus out both left and right (looking like samson pushing the pillars apart) making my body a "cross". I agree I could have explained that a lot more clearly. Sorry.
