In agreement with Mike's comment: Abe sensei often shows the blending part of a movement in large form, before making it a smaller almost-invisible movement.

Eek. I think it's the easiest thing to do. It's what Rob and Ignatius are using in their BJJ encounters, as I understand their descriptions.
To me, it is the "place to start looking and understanding" when you can do that.
