Birthday Rolls for P.H.!
We worked on katatetori kokyunage uchi, tonight. Nage sweeps uke's grabbing hand outward and steps and turns next to uke under his arm. Slide forward and extend arm to throw. There's usually an atemi while stepping under. We did several variations including starting with a tenkan leading to the uchi move and one where nage doesn't turn but takes another step so uke must step around and roll the other direction. Fun stuff! We also did one where instead of sweeping the hand out we pushed it across leading into sokomen iriminage.
