Roll Back and Over Head compliment the Kesa Gatame Roll Over. If Uke moves away from Nage the Roll Back and Over Head tend to be easier, if Uke moves toward Nage the Roll Over tends to be easier.
These are practiced without using pressure points. Uke should move because of Nage's technique and not because of pain. If Nage can get to Uke's face Nage has many options to cause pain or serious injury.
