Article: "Irimi" by Ellis Amdur
Posted 11/30/2011 11:34am [from Jun Akiyama]

This article entitled "Irimi" by Ellis Amdur on the AikidoJournal.com site outlines Ellis's thoughts on the concept of irimi. From the article: "I recently read a post which includes an oft-used phrase—“get off the line and enter.” Not only does this phrase not do full justice to the concept of irimi (I confess I’ve used it myself), it leads to a mistaken understanding of aikido technique. This mistake is not only intellectual, but expressed physically, probably lies at the root of the technical deficiencies that are, allegedly, so rife in aikido."
