Ate Komi Tonso no Kata (Hit Include Escape and Run Form)

The Uke is in Dai Jodan no Kamae with a sword. Stand in Hachimonji no Kamae (left hand forward). At the instant the Uke starts to cut, step in with the right foot and sink down to the left knee, then slam into Suigetsu with a right Boshi Ken. Then, throw Metsubushi, then leap away to the right side and use Mokuton no Jutsu - this is to use a tree for concealment and/or to use the tree as a barrier between you and the Uke. Keep your posture high and be ready to throw Shuriken (Zanshin).

Arrogance is too often the companion of excellence.
