Just a quick note to record the URI of a useful Youtube video. This
is from the yawatashi for the 2011 All-Japan Women’s Tournament at Ise. Unfortunately the video is overexposed so you don’t see much detail of Akiyama-sensei, the ite, but it’s good to watch the kaizoe, particularly Satake-sensei. Since the ite is a woman the movements and the responsibilities are a little different, and not seen all that often. I imagine an awful lot can go wrong with the tasuki.
