Re: When is HENKA WAZA hunky-dori?

The training at home (in an Iwama environment) have much more structured feel than other dojo Iīve visited. Probably sloppy compared to those Yoshinkan and Shodokan types though.

We train alot of kihon waza. There is really no room for henka or kaeshiwaza during kihon. Both uke and tori has a set role, if one of the partners breaks the "rules" the learning opportunity of the waza that we are training is lost. Then were just training ourselves do things the wrong way.

So I guess it depends, when training kihon waza itīs a big no no, but during jiyu waza or your own training outside the regular schedule itīs a totally different case...
