Is connection the same thing as timing? I assume it is but I've never heard it explained as connection. Just having correct timing.
To me connection is a different thing. The word Endo sensei uses is "atari". It is a certain way of "touching" uke and getting connected to his center through this way of touching and moving this.

uhh it's even difficult to explain this in my own language ...
