Re: Irimi/too slow problem

Good advice so far.

I (like the others) don't think it's a matter of "speed", but of position and timing.

If you enter so you are directly behind uke he cannot turn to face you because you are behind him. By holding his collar and staying tight behind him, he won't be able to get to you.
