After leafing through a copy of "Budo Training in Aikido" (English translation of "Budo Renshu"), I seemed to have missed the kotegaeshi portion...would you mind pointing out which technique # it's under?
Yes, you are right. I used Budo Renshu as a preparation for Aiki Expo and clearly confused kote-gaeshi with other techniques I taught which do appear in the book. Many apologies.
The irimi I had in mind in a reply to Don Modesto is when you take uke's other, non-attacking, hand. This would be very unwise in a knife attack, but it is a good irimi exericse. The entering movement is very deep, but is outward-turning (ŠO‰ñ‚è). With this movement, you can take either hand.
