In terms of bunkai/oyo, for one example, in Bassai-sho I practice the two manji uke as responses to a shoot or bearhug. In the first one (left side) my lower arm (left gedan barai) sweeps the

attacker's right arm down and my upper arm (right jodan uke) sweeps the attacker's left arm up and away leaving him open to any counter I want to throw in. Shifting into kokutsu dachi pulls

my center of gravity away from his tackle.
