Uke's fingers should be facing upwards.
Do not twist your partner's arm
to the side. Your body will
become twisted and unable to
concentrate your power.
For the throw on both #1 and #2 basic techniques,
your body should be in a perfect line towards your
partner. Uke's fingers should be rotating back at
their face with the hands near the inside of your knee.
A common mistake is to try to
pull the person over. Your hips
will become light and your uke
will be able to escape.
To turn your partner on to their stomach for the basic
pin - keep your hips down and ride your weight on
their arm as your rotate circularly using your whole
body (don't just twist with your arms).
