Re: Nikyo or Ikkyo or something Else?

In the dojo I train, Ikkyo and Nikyo are treated as separate techniques entirely, although they share certain principles just like all Aikido techniques. The photo from wikipedia is what I would call ‘ikkyo irimi' (ikkyo followed by a forward movement in the direction the shoulder is pointed).

Hope this helps ;-)
