Roller Tenkan

On skates or a bicycle (using good sense and protective gear as required),

1. Try turning in a circle while:

  • Looking in the direction you are going.
  • Looking at your hand.
  • Looking outside the circle (that is, if turning to the left, look to the right).
  • Looking back in the direction you came from.
  • Looking at the center point of the circle.
  1. Observe which of these are easier? Which are more difficult?
  2. Repeat the above on foot on the mat.
  • For nage, which version of tenkan is easiest to do?
  • For uke, which tenkan feels more compelling?
