BUd, I dont think Peter's confusion would be over what tenchi nage actually is or how it is performed. but instead over its classification. I could easily consider tenchinage as a form of iriminage because of its entering body movement. in the same way that many (or all) throws can be considered forms of kokyo nage.
Exactly, it is the first time I have heard tenchinage denied an irimi classification.
In Shodokan parlance it is ryote dori variation of aigamae-ate. Aigamae-ate is definately an irimi technique.
I would be interested in an expansion of the reasons you would not consider tenchinage so.
