Re: Irimi/too slow problem

IMHO, its never too slow if the timing, posture, and position is right.

You can enter deeper, or get off the line and let the uke come to you, or both.

Skipping rope is great to footwork becoming faster and lighter.

I am 6'4", 230 lbs, and 57 years old. My Irimi is pretty decent.
