"In Daitoryu, we don't move to evade away from the attack, we move in to attack the attack - has a very interesting effect on uke "

Greg, That is interesting. That is one of the main principals I teach...I never did like the term "getting of the line"...I have always called it "Redefining the Line of Attack".
Yes, make it your line and not Uke's - of course it is very short lived, since as soon as YOU contact uke, their balance is gone and the attack is over
