Re: Does this practice have a name?

It's a fun practice, but I'm suspicious of it. I got into it with a black belt from another dojo at a gasshuku last year, kotegaishi to nikkyo to irimi to kaiten-nage. Fun, but the truth is if he hadn't been getting his center back at the end of each technique, he'd never have been able to attack well enough to motivate the next technique. Since then, I've been working more on the "one cut/one kill" end of the spectrum.
