I have a theory, based soley on my gut feeling and nothing that could be considered even remotely scientific, that if I practiced nothing but kotegaeshi for a year my ikkyo, nikyo, sankyo, etc would all get better (assuming of course I already have some level of base profiency in the technique).

I base this on my understanding that most of what makes the technique work is proper timing, distance, positioning and what-have-you. All things that are learned and practiced in every technique albeit with slight variations.

Mostly I'm blabbering and fully expect to roasted by the more logical types here


"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
