Re: inside the spiral vs. outside the spiral

cool, it's what we do. I don't know many dojos that practice that. Do you know who teaches that? My sensei, Kazuo Nomura, was a student of Tanaka Bansen sensei.

Every aikikai style practises that, most just call the taisabaki "tenkan". I guess your teacher differentiates the turns/pivots as "Uchi tenkan" or "Soto Tenkan".

Incidentally, one of your dojo mates, Tadauchi-san, is training with us in Malaysia.
