    You should also train the counter for "arm drag" too. When you move your leg behind your opponent's legs, you can prevent him to move behind you. When your opponent tries to drag you toward the southeast direction, you move into the southwest direction instead.

    Drop, yes, arm drag. For some reason, I've not noted it being used cross-genre, so to speak. Works though. Just noted you responded.

    With some techniques, uke may be throwing themselves into ukemi to avoid the technique. Many wrist throws end up this way in the dojo, but on the street would have a different (ugly) fall or destruction of the joint.
