1. Begin the Kata in Fudo Dachi. On the command “Yoi” move into the Yoi stance.
  2. On the command “Hajime” move the left foot 90° to the left into Kokutsu Dachi simultaneously the right fist is
    pulled back to the right side in the ready punch position and the left fist is positioned immediately on, and
    vertical to, the right fist. Without moving the body raise the right arm into a position similar to Jodan Uke (to
    the side of the head) and move the left arm across into a Chudan Uchi Uke position (fist approximately at chin
    height). Both these movements are to be executed simultaneously.
  3. Still in the Kokutsu Dachi position strike right Tetsui Hizo Uchi twisting the hips square. The left fist is
    simultaneously brought back over the right shoulder so that the elbow is level with the jaw (n.b. the left fist is
    approximately 3 cm above the shoulder and the back of the fist faces upwards). Retaining the same stance
    the right fist is turned 180° so that the knuckles are directed straight in front as if to cover, the left fist is
    brought back to the ready punch position.
  4. Move through with the left leg into Kiba Dachi and looking to the left punch left Jun Tsuki and pull the right fist
    into the ready punch position. (It is essential to use the hip movement in Jun Tsuki).
  5. Pull the right leg back into right Kokutsu Dachi at the same time turning the body 180° simultaneously the left
    fist is pulled back to the left side to the ready punch position and the right fist is positioned immediately on,
    and vertical to, the left fist. Without moving the body or its direction raise the left arm into a position similar
    to Jodan Uke and move the right arm across into a Chudan Uchi Uke position.
  6. Still in the Kokutsu Dachi position strike left Tetsui Hizo Uchi twisting the hips square. The right fist is
    simultaneously brought back over the left shoulder so that the elbow is level with the jaw. Retaining the same
    stance the left fist is turned 180° so that the knuckles are directed straight in front as if to cover, the right fist
    is brought back to the ready punch position.

    Shuto Mawashi Uke.

  17. Close both fists and move the left leg across at 45° to turn into left Zenkutsu Dachi, simultaneously the left
    forearm is positioned at 45° in front of the head. In addition the right arm, fist closed, is positioned behind the
    right leg, thumb facing upwards. These latter movements are executed whilst the body is turning into the
    position preparing for Zenkutsu Dachi. To complete the turn the right hand moves quickly in a circular bowling
    action (with the fist closed) over the shoulder at a 45° angle (at this stage the left arm is in front of the body)
    across the left thigh and then across the body with a right Chudan Uchi Uke. As the right arm moves across
    the body the left fist is pulled back into the left ready punch (n.b. all these movements are executed quickly).
    Keeping the arms in this position kick right Chudan Mae Geri so that the leg is just inside the right arm (when
    executing the kick ensure that the right arm does not drop from the blocking position).
