That's a link of my double full. As I take off, I'm leaning to my right slightly, which makes me travel sideways and thus makes things like 2 and 1/2's hard to land. Since I twist left, I assume if I'm dropping my shoulder early I would be leaning to the left and not the right. Why am I doing this and how do I stop it?
Edit: I've also seen some people (kenzo shirai) use an interesting technique, which seems to let them twist early without going sideways. When Kenzo does it he only lifts his twisting side arm to horizontal, and his opposite side arm goes up to the ear for the set. He can twist very early and doesn't lean sideways. Is this a good way to do it? It would seem that it helps combat the whole leaning to the opposite side problem. Any ideas?
