Kata demonstrated by Shimizu Takaji (Jo) and
Kuroda Ichitaro (Tachi).
From Tsune no Kamae,
walk left-right-left. When the right foot steps forward, change
jo to left hand. As the left foot steps forward again, strike
the opponent`s forearm.
Draw back into
Hikiotoshi no Kamae. Kuritsuke (as in Ran-ai). Rotate jo
vertical and squat trapping the opponent`s hands and pressing
the tip of the jo into the abdominal region.
As the opponent
retreats, quickly stand up, and take Hikiotoshi kamae.
Advance with tachi
sheathed. As you put your hand on hilt preparing to draw it from
the saya, Shidachi strikes your forearm.
Step back, draw the
tachi. From Jodan Kamae, strike.
Kuritsuke. To escape the trap, start to retreat. You have no
time to raise the tachi to jodan kamae before Shidachi strikes. Osame.
