Re: Irimi/too slow problem

Remember that speed is measured in how you cover the distance. And sometimes the person who covers a great distance quickly doesn't always look like they do -- it is about timing, economy of motion, and simply "doing it" with confidence and authority. I watch newer students and often things are going in all sorts of directions. Limbs flailing, this here, that there, etc. Just move in. Deeply and with confidence. You'll be surprised how quickly you can move if you just do it with confidence. Which of course means doing it over and over again until you can. Which means practice more... The answer to most of life's difficult questions...
