Oh, that was different. I was responding to this comment, which was clearly a criticism:
I meant we do it that way because that is the technique. We intercept the Yokomen while it is still winding up.
i kinda see where you're going with this. in yoshinkan, the entrance when stopping yokomen uchi is visibly a 'strike.'
the entrance is' different' from an irimi movement from, say, tanto tori tsuki irimi nage... when you see ando sensei or inoue sensei do this, their movement is initiated as uke starts to chamber his arm to strike.
