Description


  • Shidachi

    Wait in Tsune no kamae, as Uchidachi advances. When Uchidachi enters Ma-ai, step back and take Gyakute Kamae.

     

    Right foot step forward across left. Gyakuteuchi. Draw back the jo, and lift up catching the tachi (NOTE: in reality, lift up and hit the forearm to breake it.)

    Kuritsuke.

     

    Kaeshi Tsuki. Slide back into Hikiotoshi kamae. Hikiotoshi uchi.  Me tsuki. Osame.

     

     

  • Uchidachi

    From Chudan kamae, advance in Hasso Kamae.  Lower the tachi to Chudan kamae, AT THE SAME TIME Shidachi takes kamae.

     

    Block Shidachi`s strike: Left foot steps right horizontally, right foot steps forward, and raise the tachi perpendicular above forehead.

     

    Left foot steps forward, and make a cut to the left (target is the trapezius and neck). However, Shidachi does Kuritsuke. Step back facing toward Shidachi (who thrusts). Step back again to avoid the strike.  Osame.
