I personally like poetic names, like "Dragon whips its Tail" or "Willow in the Snow."
So when I was digging through Tokio Hirano's various videos, looking to catalog the different ways he did uchikomi exercises, I gave each one my own name to help me remember which was which. The list ended up including exercises that I called...
- Running Room
- A Chorus Line
- Praise The Elbow!
- Boogie Nage
- Where’s My Chair?
- Sumo Stomp
- Zombie Man
If these weird-sounding names have teased you sufficiently that you want to hook up in person to work on them, let me know and we'll work something out.
