In General 23rd January, 2005 - Refine Your Irimi Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #12 New 01-23-2005 10:48 AM
...Just a few notes on refining movements:

Shihonage Irimi
- switch feet (front foot back; back foot front) without pulling back with your hands
- slide forward with front foot and bring uke's wrist to your (more or less) natural hand grip; the slide starts the contortion in uke's stance
- step forward with the back foot; this really contorts the uke's position
- pivot and turn to face the uke's back (perpendicular if possible)

The last two steps of the shihonage irimi movement are the most important. Pay attention to where the foot lands as this will determine the end position relative to the uke.

Ryote Dori Nikkyo
- gyaku hanmi (can be ai)
- bring front foot back and step sideways (it's easier to get uke off balance if they are teetered to the side than leaning to their front due to the hanmi stance)
- don't pull back with hands/arms; they stay in front of nage and "bring" the uke off balance with them
- begin nikkyo grip and follow with ikkyo movement; remember to step forward or slide forward
- drop nikkyo arm followed by controlling other hand/arm on uke's elbow
- finish w/ either irimi or tenkas as initiated by foot movement

When performing tenkan movement, continue downward motion until uke meets the floor; DO NOT PULL UKE HORIZONTALLY AROUND YOU - movement is down, down, down with the tenkan turn.

(Don't you just love capitalization for emphasis.)
