After warming up, we worked with a munetsuki attack this evening. We started with an inside tenkan so nage's forearms ended up resting on uke's shoulders and, using weight underside, dropped uke into ushiro ukemi (backward roll/fall). After that, we did an outside tenkan catching the underside of uke's arm and, with a sidestep, spun uke into position for irimi-nage (it sounds more complicated than it is). This same entry served us for kaitenage and sankyo, too. We ended up with a little one-armed kokyudosa to see what kind of differences that makes. I received my yonkyu certificate, tonight.
