Kaisoku (Superior Foot)

This technique means to have superior footwork. What is important here is to knock the Uke over with O-Soto by means of putting the leg down naturally after lifting it for O-Soto - making the movement as flowing as possible.

Both clasp both hands in Hanno Hon Itsu Gassho and bow to each other. Then, you stand in Ichimonji no Kamae and the Uke goes into Dai Jodan no Kamae.

As the Uke cuts down, shift to the left with the left foot to evade and kick upwards to the Ukes right hand with the right foot. This will knock the sword out of the Ukes hand.

The Uke goes to draw his short sword.

Step onto the Ukes right foot with your right foot and control the Ukes right wrist with your left hand. At the same time, strike to kasumi with a right shuto.

Then, put your right hand between his right arm and his body to grab his shoulder - you are still controlling the right wrist with your left hand. This movement will release the Ukes hand from the short sword.

Now, you open the Ukes right hand out into Omote Gyaku with your left hand and hold the Ukes shoulder with your right hand, and at the same time, kick the Ukes right leg away with a right O-soto. Pin the Uke.

Return to Ichimonji no Kamae. Zanshin

It is usually the reply that causes the fight.
