"If your opponent strikes with fire, counter with water, becoming completely fluid and free-flowing. Water, by its nature, never collides with or breaks against anything. On the contrary, it swallows up any attack harmlessly. "-- O' Sensei

Reminds me a lot of irimi nague.
We are instructed not to position arm in the neck line, but to circulate it around uke, much like the way a river goes through a rock (onwards, almost strike, upwards - palm to the sky, cicle down while stepping forward). It's beautiful (and it works).

The water analogy is pretty old. I've found reference to it in Shinkage-ryu as far back as the mid-1600s. I suspect Bruce got it from Chinese arts going back much further than that.

That's right, Bruce got it from Lao-Tzu..

He invented it and the foxtrot. Originally the foxtrot was part of the five animals form of dance but the other four have been lost in the mysts of time.
