Re: Irimi: Entering = Initiate and Intercept

Very well said. What appears to be reactive is in actuality proactive. What is defensive is offensive. A really hard concept to get over to students who think the attack begins when their wrist is grabbed or when shomenuchi is in it's downward arc.

He who hesitates is lost...

If you snooze you lose....
