Variation muna dori ikkyo ura

This is Ura-waza. Basically speaking, there is no Ura-waza as such in this exercise. The key to this exercise is to wrest your partner's hold off your body.
Ura-waza can be performed by wrestling your partner's hold off.
Bad example: If you turn rearward without disengaging your partner’s hold, your elbow will go up and you will find it impossible to pin him down circularly.
