Ever watched a dog shake itself dry? Notice how it shakes itself from front to back? Notice how that kinda looks like a wave is rippling through it's body.
I was in the kitchen making tea and while I was waiting I was going through irimi nage and I caught my relection in the door and I have this wave that starts about my knees and ripples up through my body when I do irimi nage.
Then I was doing a henka of ryoto dori tenchi nage and again I noticed this wave, although it's different to irimi nage.
