Hosen (Bee tip)


The name of this technique means to knock the Uke down with a strike to the Ukes throat. The strike in this technique was once called called Hosen Ken

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 (one hand holds the short sword).

The Uke cuts down from above. Step 45 degrees back to the left with the left foot whilst using Moguri Gata (submerging pattern).

The Uke then prepares for Migi Kubi Giri (neck cut). At the moment this begins, kick up with the right foot (toes) to the Ukes right elbow (kick the area is just above the elbow, to the nerve points at the start of the muscle). This will knock the short sword out of the Ukes hand and raise the right arm up.

As you land from the kick, strike the Uke with Gyokaku Ken (hold the thumb and the little finger together and use the other 3 fingers like a claw. Strike with the middle finger aimed at the base of the windpipe and the other 2 on top of the collarbone). This strike knocks the Uke down.

Finish by leaping onto the Uke with Migi Kakato Geri to the right of the Ukes chest to finish.
