Hi Peter,

Hope the training and other things are going well for you.

Kime, used in this sense, often means "decisive" or something of that nature.

The point of a joint lock where it is effective or the point of a newaza situation where control is effective. The point in time where you have decided for a punch to be focused and effective.

Kime can also mean an agreement, or the way it was explained to me some time ago is that it is the point where it is evident (agreeable) to both people that a hold, lock, etc. is effective.
