Irimi-nage - literal meaning -enter and throw. Isn't this all aikido technique?
I know which technique most people call irimi-nage. Is there a more precise term??
Hello Sam,

...that's about as 'precise' as any technique gets! At least it gives you a hint of what to do ...'irimi' = enter ...'nage' = throw ...Ok, I enter, then throw! ...Cool! about 'ikkyo' ....'nikyo' ...'sankyo' ...'yonkyo' help what so ever with these!!!!

...and the REALLY ambiguous one being 'kokyunage' ...which I've come to understand means ANY technique that doesn't have a name yet!

That's the way it goes! ...Good luck! :^)
