In our Dojo we were taught to stick out our hand/wrists....as if we are tempting the attacker to grab it...then the split second before the grab it, we irimi/tenkan in and perform a Kokyo Nage...(Sounds like it'd work with a Judoka, or BJJ)...am I initiating the fight?
Nope.

Just imagine the same thing but you stick out the hand for a friendly shake. How and if the other person grabs your hand/wrist depends completely on the other persons intention and the connection you made with that.
