Kakko (Bind And Beat)

Kuden - The name of this technique means to strike and make the Uke conceed. The important point with this technique is to put all of your body weight into the kick and the strike.

Both you and the Uke begin in Seigan no Kamae (right hand forwards). The Uke attacks with a left Fudo Ken to your face. Step back 45 degrees to the left with the left foot and receive the attack with a right Uke Nagashi. The Uke then attacks with a right Fudo Ken to your face. Step back 45 degrees to the right with the right foot, pull your hips back and lower them and receive the attack with a left Uke Nagashi. Then immediately kick with the top of your right foot into the Ukes right inner thigh (Sai). As the Uke looks down to see what is happening, strike with a right Goshin Ken to Itto Nitto Santo with a feeling of pushing the strike through - and at the same time, drop your right leg down from the kick. Keep your back straight. (Itto Nitto Santo is an attack to the throat with 3 fingers and is as follows - your middle finger goes to the point Toki No Atari which is on the top of the bone just below the adams apple. Ring finger to the point called Ichiji which is on top of the point where the left collar bone starts, and your index finger goes to the point called San Atari which is on top of the point where the right collar bone starts. Your hand movement for this is similar to the way a cat strikes with it"s paw. As you kick, place your fingers at the same time). Then return to Seigan no Kamae and Zanshin.

The power of the mind is infinite.
