Raiuchi  雷打

Kata demonstrated by Shimizu Takaji (Jo) and Kuroda Ichitaro (Tachi).




  • Shidachi

    Begin the same way as Kasumi. Avoid and block the strike, by stepping turning to the left, and in Sasae no kamae, press jo into the abdomen inhibiting arm movement.


    As Uchidachi steps back, recovers, and strikes again, quickly pivot to opposite side turning right this time, and block in the same manner.


    Me tsuki. Osame.



  • Uchidachi 

    Advance in Hasso kamae, and take Chudan kamae AT THE SAME TIME Shidachi takes kamae.


    From Jodan kamae make a right cut (feet don`t move -- keep right foot forward).

    Right foot steps back (almost Heisoku dachi). Jodan kamae. Make a cut to the left (AGAIN RIGHT FOOT STEPS FORWARD).


    Lower tachi, turn to face Shidachi. Osame.
