When most people think "Iwama", they think of kotai keiko. But, that's less than one-fourth of the Iwama pedagogical method.
Hi Greg,

Just for clarity, I haven't seen the term kotai keiko. [sometimes left-coasters use different terminology] I tried to find kotai and wound up in a kendo site and it explained kotai as 'change', but this could be interpreted in so many ways. I have heard Iwama described as more kihon (start-stop), is this related?
