LOL on that video! That's what passes for a black belt these days? Watch the uke and notice just how much he assists with the successful execution of these "techniques." The uke's actions are almost the antithesis of what an untrained person would do - flailing arms, flinching, ducking. Seriously gonna upset expectations and screw up leg placement. And it isn't so much that she telegraphs her attack, rather she publishes it in hardcopy with plenty of time for review. With a four step running start, the moment she's airborne a simple step off the line of attack and a gentle assist to help her sail on past the edge of the mat onto an unforgiving hardwood floor pretty much ought to do it.
