Re: Irimi: Entering = Initiate and Intercept
Spot on. At least for us, irimi is a cornerstone of our technique, and executed very similar to the way you have described. It is, in fact, key in *all* of our technique.
Our Shihan has often stressed the importance of proper irimi and has been quoted saying "Everything is irimi" and "Stop waiting to get hit..". I believe the importance of irimi gets lost too often.
Great post. Thanks for sharing.
