Re: Awase (from Meaning of Competitive)
Thank you, George, for your explication. Being in phase for kihon is not quite how believe I'm being taught to train, but it does fit how I was taught to train in the past, and the reasons for it make more sense with your explanation and Mike Hacker's comments.
I would also like to thank the rest for all for your comments. I believe you answered my questions. Naturally, I will rely upon my seniors and my training for a final (evolving) answer, but I wanted to understand the different (or similar) ways that people approach this.
