Kyogi (Whipping off Technique)

Kuden - This technique means to refuse the Uke any attacks / techniques. The important point of this technique is to have the same rythem for Uke Nagashi, the attack to Toki and the Fudo Ken to Gorin - 1,2,3 - this can be done at fast speed, but the rythem must be maintained.

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 and receive the attack with a left Uke Nagashi. Shift your weight forwards to your left foot, then lift the foot slightly and stamp down with your heel powerfully to the Ukes right foot (this is very characteristic of the Koto Ryu Ninjutsu). Finally, with or without a right step in, strike diagonally down and through to the Ukes Gorin with a right Fudo Ken (rotate the hips counter clockwise for this). Then back to Seigan no Kamae and Zanshin.

A thousand good deeds are spoiled by one bad.
