Thanks guys. Any comments on maintaining Maai between the nage and the uke? (with respect to Tsugi Ashi, of course)

The bigger/longer the weapon the bigger the mai....... Using tsugi ashi (rapidly) to move in (Irimi) after avoiding/parrying strike from such weapon, which could be bare hands,elbows, knees, feet, jo, bokken , spear (yari), tanto or anything else you can lay your hands on........
