Hosoku (Taking And Dropping -Capture An Approach)

Kuden - The meaning of this technique is to capture the Uke. This techniques important point is to not for a moment take your eyes off the Uke.

The Uke grabs your lapel with his left hand and punches to your face with a right Fudo Ken (the Uke steps slightly forward with the left foot - no step with the right foot for this). Cover the Ukes left hand with your right and step off to the right side with your right leg, drop your hips and receive the attack with a left Uke Nagashi. Without stepping, open up your thumb and forefinger of your right hand -palm down - and strike to the Ukes left Koe with your thumb. This will make the Ukes upper body come forward - also control the Ukes right hand with your left forearm after Uke Nagashi. Then, with or without a step forward with the left leg (depends on the distance) strike the Ukes face with Kikaku Ken (your forehead) with a feeling of striking through. Then Back to Seigan no Kamae and Zanshin.

Remember to maintain eye contact.
