Description of Ura shuto

Ura shuto is using the same attack form as Omote shuto. The main change is the way the rear hand is attacking. In omote shuto, the hand is attacking the same side of the neck (facing each other), but in ura shuto, the attack goes to the opposite side of the neck or face. Yet, however, the attack is still using the inner part of the hand ( see image for correct positioning of the hand).
