  • Shidachi

    From Ichimonji no Kamae, deflect the thrust by gently "kissing" the tachi with the jo.


    Change grip and strike the tachi down.  Immediately raise the jo. Me Tsuki.


    Pursue Uchidachi. Suriashi 2 steps. Feet together in Heisoku dachi, while raising the jo vertical. Right foot steps back into Hikiotoshi kamae.


    Strike the tachi.  Me tsuki.  Osame.


  • Uchidachi

    From Chudan kamae, advance in Hasso kamae. When you enter ma-ai, bring the tachi down to the left side. Draw back the tachi close to your side with blade (monouchi) to the left.

    As you thrust to Shidachi`s solar plexus, turn the blade (causes more damage as it enters the body).

    Shidachi deflects the thrusts and strikes the tachi, so begin to retreat. Step back several steps into Hasso kamae. From Jodan kamae, take chudan kamae.  (Shidachi strikes.) Osame.
