Re: Irimi/too slow problem

I think we're all trying to work it out in our heads and on the mat - history lessons only goes so far, telling people to go find the "real aiki" gets old after a while (for tellers and listeners, I'm sure) . . .

I still stand by my generic old "fit in/take the space before they can get there" --- plenty of levels to it (from hit 'em and throw 'em, to opposing tension and central pivoting them to their doom) to work on and refine.
