Iai Fu (Sealing The Sword Draw)

The meaning of this technique is to match the Ukes energy and to envelop him. The important point here is to keep your left fist directly above your head when you approach the Uke so that your head is protected from being hit with the handle of the sword.

Both clasp both hands in Hanno Hon Itsu Gassho and bow to each other. Then, you stand in Ichimonji no Kamae and the Uke immediately draws the sword for a horizontal cut to your stomach.

Evade this by leaping back (still in Kamae). The Uke then enters into Dai Jodan no Kamae.

Immediately step back in with the right foot and cover with you right fist just in front of your forehead / above your head, and simultaneously strike the Ukes left Kimon with a right Boshi Ken.

Next, kick the Uke to Suigetsu with the right foot to knock the Uke down.

Return to Ichimonji no Kamae and Zanshin

It is usually the reply that causes the fight.
