How would you say that Aikido is able to defeat an attacker at the moment of contact by avoiding them? My first Aikido teacher used to day, the #1 rule was to get out of the way. I now disagree, I now think the #1 rule is enter/irimi.
Do you do the entering movement while still in the line of attack?
