Variation tuski dai ikkyo

Basic exercise : Tsuki Dai-Ikkyo 

When turning your body to the left (stepping inside the line of attack), knock your partner's thrust down at a point beyond the reach of his left hand, as shown in the photo, and follow it up with Dai-Ikkyo Omote-waza. Since omote-waza is the most difficult technique to perform, it is therefore recommended that you concentrate on the following exercise.
Bad exemple  

If you try to get hold of your partner's thrusting hand within his own sphere, he will thrust your side with his unengaged hand. 
Choose a point beyond the reach of your partner’s left hand when chopping down his right-hand trust.
Basic exercise : Tsuki Dai-Ikkyo 

After sending your partner's thrust downward, align your toes and pin him down circularly. If you step inside the central thrusting line of your partner, move to the outside immediately. If you plant yourself inside the central line and then move out of it, that sequence can no longer be called Ura-waza. Ura-waza is a basic form of aligning your toes (a reverse oblique stance) and turning your body obliquely with lightning speed to cope with attacks.
