how do you do a groin kick in the middle of an irimi nage? I'm trying to picture it, but it's not coming (then again, that's my weakest technique).
Just after you tenkan (at the same point you would start reversing direction) just bring your inside knee up. I don't think you could pull off a real kick unless you were doing the technique at a distance like Ikeda Sensei does in some of his videos. I also think that if you did this (knee or kick) you would have to finish with a different technique (kaiten nage comes to mind) because uke would probably be doubled over and falling forward.
