Re: irimi nage spinning

Thanks James, I believe that's what I'm working at but I find that at the point where I need to step back, uke's momentum is usually going across my body rather that towards me, so the tenshin necessarily involves awkwardly yanking them back with me in order to keep them close to my center.

It also doesn't feel like that movement coincides with the axis of rotation up to that point.

Perhaps this is just a matter of practicing more tenshin movements.
