Hi Chuck

Thanks but were my confusion arises is that kime is the word we use for the application of yonkyo like pressure be it on the forarm, ankle, whatever. I must say I am having a real hard time equating that with the "decisive" of kime no kata.

The way I understand it, and remember I am having difficulty with the concept, is that it is kime even before the lock is completely in place.

I have asked this question closer to home but really never got a satisfactory answer.
