Hozoinryu Takadaha Sojutsu Training Kata Shinshikake Nuketsuki

The kamayari strikes down thrusts to his maedō and uradō with his spear shaft before he evades the suyari who tries to beat his spear aside and thrusts to his maedō.

The suyari starts in gedan, the kamayari in jōdan.

On the third step the suyari thrusts to the maedō of the kamayari, the kamayari strikes down the suyari with his spear shaft (uchiotoshi) and returns to jōdan immediately.

Immediately the suyari thrusts to the uradō of the kamayari with okuriashi forward, who strikes down the suyari again to immediately resume jōdan.

Now the suyari tries to swipe the kamayari to the left as seen from his side with okuriashi forwards. The kamayari avoids this blow by lowering the tip of his spear while at the same time making a step to the left with his right foot before thrusting to the maedō of the suyari with a step of the left foot forwards.

Now the kamayari moves backwards with okuriashi on the same line on which he had previously moved forward while withdrawing his spear.

Then both parties return to the center line while bringing their spears back into yarigamae.

Now both disengage and return to their starting positions.
