P.S. although ikkyo and irimi-nage could be taught exclusively at the start, I think it is a big mistake to think that techniques are seperate, and thus could be taught seperately. Until a student knows ALL the core techniques they cannot really start doing aikido (i.e. being truly responsive to uke).
