Re: Irimi: Entering = Initiate and Intercept

Last couple of advanced classes, my teacher has been focusing on very direct irimi. No getting off the line at all, no technique, but straight towards uke in different exercises. It's really really hard! Even when the difference is just a couple millimetres there's still this tendency to get a little bit off the line, to avoid uke even just a little bit.
