Mikiri controls the distance in 3 ways

what is mikiri?

The term Mikiri is used to describe cutting the distance with your body.

The word Mikiri itself means body cut. Mi (čēĢ) means body and Kiri (切り) means cut. Of course this is a figure of speech meaning that you use your body to cut the distance.

The word cut implies that it is a sharp movement. A split second in time. Mikiri is pulling the body sharply, just out of range of the attack.
