This is a short video of myself doing Uraken (backlist) technique.  I regret it's not as good as I would like for video demonstration purposes, but I diid want to put it on here for the benefit of my students.

There are several different ways that we normally practice uraken. In this performance, I am demonstrating from a position similar to the first move in Naihanchi Nidan, and the strike goes out sideways, coordinated with the koshi motion. The hand should stay relaxed until contact, then snap into the target. As the koshi returns so should the first.
