Irimi Nage Enter and Throw
Katate Dori Irimi Nage
How to do Irimi Nage according to Osensei. When your partner grabs your left wrist firmly with his right hand, put Ki energy into the finger tips of your left hand and turn your palm upward.
Take a large step to your partner’s right side with your left foot, while extending your left hand diagonally to the right.
Then grab your partner’s right wrist with your right hand and release your left hand from his grip.
At the same time, turn your body to the right 180 degrees and look in the same direction as your partner.
Hold your partner’s collar from behind with your left hand.
BRING YOUR HAND TOWARDS YOUR CHEST.
Step through with your right foot and throw your partner as though pushing his neck down with your inside right elbow.
Be stable and stay in a correct hanmi position after throwing your partner.
Put Ki energy into your fingertips and protect yourself from further attack.

Ways To Use Irimi
One on One Irimi
Enter behind Uke’s back, take his balance then throw, atemi, punch or choke.
Multiple Attacker Irimi
Enter towards the weakest side and control the group from behind.
Enter your target’s mind by using your words as atemi. Then disturb his emotional balance. Influence your target’s mind by planting your ideas.
Group or Social Irimi
Enter the group by befriending the head of the group. Take the balance of the group by influencing the head of the group to do your objectives.
Personal Development Irimi
Enter your mind during meditation. Take the balance of your lower self by silencing your monkey and lizard brain. Give the monkey brain a job like concentrating on your breathing. In the silence of your mind listen. Be aware of your flowing mind. Lead your mind to what is really important to you to live a good life. Throw away your negative thoughts, complains, anger and blame.
