To apply technique the notion of distance is essential. It is also important to stay safe.


The power and capacity to move come from posture. It also reflect a state of mind that can be called martial.


Getting closer to the danger is sometimes the safest option. that's why we do Irimi (入り身?). It is the act of entering straight into a technique.
