Kuden

The meaning of this technique is to use leverage. The important point is that you don"t attempt to catch the Ukes kicking leg on your arm, but instead, you place it onto your shoulder. This Kata has two names (Ko and Hanetsurabe) and is two different forms.

Sono Ichi (Number 1)

Both clasp both hands in Futen Goshin Gassho and bow to each other. Then both you and the Uke stand in Ichimonji no Kamae.

The Uke draws a short sword and stands in Dai Jodan no Kamae with the short over the head, (one hand holds the short sword)

The Uke cuts down from above. Evade outside to the left with the left foot and grab the Ukes right wrist lightly with your right hand.

The Uke kicks with the right foot.

Drop down low and scoop up under the Ukes leg with the right arm while still holding the hand with the short sword.

Finish by ramming your right hand into the Ukes face and stepping forward with the right foot in order to throw the Uke.

Then return to Ichimonji no Kamae and Zanshin.

Sono Ni (Number 2)

Both clasp both hands in Futen Goshin Gassho and bow to each other. Then both you and the Uke stand in Ichimonji no Kamae.

The Uke draws a short sword and stands in Jodan no Kamae with the short sword over the head (one hand holds the short sword).

The Uke cuts down from above. Evade inside to the right with the right foot and grab the Ukes right wrist lightly with your left hand.

The Uke kicks with the right foot.

Shift to the left with the left foot and sink low, then scoop up with the right arm to catch the Ukes leg on your right shoulder.

Finish by ramming your right hand into the Ukes face and stepping forward with the right foot in order to throw the Uke.

Then return to Ichimonji no Kamae and Zanshin.

It is wise to keep an army for a thousand years to use but once.
