Re: Tsuki Iriminage - Step back hand grab

grab punch, bad idea. bad habit. at least from my point of view. folks who know how to punch don't just leave it out there. they will draw back and throw another or something else. personally, i prefer to step in and deflect/connect uke's elbow so that i am in the position to throw a punch into uke's ribs or kidney or behind the ear. once i am there, iriminage is a foregone conclusion. that's just me being paranoid about the other person ability to fight.
