Yoko-Geri (Horizontal Kick)
The important point to this technique is how to kick accurately. Begin in Hira Ichimonji no Kamae. The Uke begins in Seigan no Kamae. The Uke thrusts with the sword. At that instant, step forwards to the left and lower your kamae at the same time by dropping your hips (your body twists slightly clockwise). From here, kick with the right foot to the Ukes hands to knock the sword away. Then as the foot lands, strike to Suigetsu with Shikan Ken. Zanshin. With this technique, remember to stay in a low posture throughout the technique.
Be near when they think you far, and be far when they think you near.
