I’m not a Omotesenke student, but I did participate in a Omotesenke school club 13 years ago. During that time I seem to remember that sometimes when turning in the tea room while seated they would use their fist/hand to lean on.

Is this the proper way to turn in Omotesenke or am I just remembering it wrong? Is this way alway used when turning in seiza or just in some instances?

I’ve trained in Omote-Senke, and the answer as far as I know varies on situation, amount of turn and whether you are male or female.  If the turn is small, and you are male, you simply walk your knees around.  If you are female, you should always use your hand to turn to avoid separating your knees immodestly.  If there are steps involved, i.e. you are moving across a mat boundary, then of course you stand, move, turn and sit (usually hiroma situation only – 6+ mats).
