Iriminage: the “entering throw” of Aikido

Iriminage might be called one of the signature techniques of Aikido. There an almost endless variety of variations on the theme, some more linear and some more circular. This video shows a small variety of iriminage, worked from “ushiro tekubitori” (hands-grabbing from behind) attack.

This second video is a selection of clips from the first, with much of it in slow-motion for study.
