#2 If you are setting the footwork correctly, your toes should be in line with the uke’s toes. Even here my toes are about 1″ too far forward. However, my goal is to block the uke’s leg as close to his ankle as possible, so I’m still in the “forgiveness” range. I am also on the ball of my right foot, NOT resting the entire foot on the ground. My foot location allows me to get most of the uke’s weight/body in front of my leg before I execute the throw.
