Re: Irimi/too slow problem
Thanks folks for all the advice. I kind of figured it was a timing problem.
I guess that's why they call it the 20 year technique.
I consider myself cumbersome in movement. Probably need to learn to jump rope as Sensei Seiser suggested. To get in real deep I have to slide the back foot up, or I'd be doing the splits. Not sure that I push off with the back foot as much as I'm shifting weight to the front foot as it slides forward. I'll play around with it in the technique as well as in two-step exercise since that seems to be the movement I want in this technique.
