Ok, folks. In our technical rotation we are back around to another technique that I'd classify as "not my best" - udegaeshi. I was taught (I think) a version of this thing in which tori ends up pretty close into uke's side in a position to drive uke into the Earth. In this more recent video clip, we see tori doing a very smooth udegaeshi with plenty of space between tori and uke. My students (and anyone else interested) should watch the that clip a few times because udegaeshi will be the technique of the day in tomorrow morning's class. Also, for reference purposes, check out the udegaeshi that was popping up in yesterday's video starting at about the 1:00 mark and compare the udegaeshi on the film to the kotegaeshi that was popping up in yesterday's video at about the 1:30 mark.
