Ura Nami (Inlet Waves)

Kuden - This techniques name means an inlet where the waves are quiet. The important point of this technique is to kick to Yaku which will bring the Ukes head towards you which will make the strike to the Ukes neck more effective.

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 ball of your right foot to the point called Yaku (inside of the calf muscle) with a sweeping motion on the Ukes right leg and at the same time shift your weight to your left leg. As your right foot comes to the floor, strike (place and press more than a strike) the Uke to both sides of Uko (located at the sides of the neck) with either Boshi Ken or Koppo Ken (left thumb to right Uko and right thumb to left Uko) - the feeling for this is of falling directly in front of the Uke with the right foot and striking to Uko, and continuing with a feeling of pushing on a downward diagonal line, straight through. Finish with Seigan no Kamae and Zanshin.

Inner fears are merely shadows that fall away in the light of greater awareness.
