I was happy with the looks of at least one of the ladies on the mats today. Two other things from today that are related to this thread.
Uke collapsing straight down at the end of iriminage when done softely:
We were tight on room and it was a yudansha. I was going softly since we were tight on space. This thread reminded me that I need to look after number 1 so made space so I could project him away from my leg the next time.
For shomenuchi iriminage (omote direct, what FMA call a split entry) another yudansha uke was playing silly buggers and aiming off to the side of my head instead of at me, to where I was going to be instead of where I was standing, which made it a little tricky. I just stood there for one and let him hit the air and then asked him to hit me.
PS cuffed at being called up to be uke a few times by Namba shihan
