Cool and thanks. I was under the assumption that the "Tree-Up" for the Americana and the "Tree-Down" for the Kimura were just something we used but nice to see that others may use this terminology as well. In my tournament in April of 2006 I used the "Tree-Up" to win one of the matches. I have to admit in class I over-used the technique and people got wise of me using it. It used to be a staple but isn't any more; though I should throw it out there again to see who bites.
