10. Kuda

Hozoinryu Takadaha Sojutsu Training Kata Ura Kuda

In the tenth form of the ura set the kamayari first pushes the suyari to the ground on his right side with his ura-sickle (the left sickle) before sliding it towards the suyaris left hand.

Both spears begin in gedan, advance three steps and stop.

Then both raise theis spears into a high jōdan, the right sickle of the kamayari lying under the suyari. Now both open their spears to the their left side turning them 90 degrees counter-clockwise lengthwise before bringing them back into the center turning them another 90 degrees counter-clockwise. The right sickle now is pointing left while the left sickle is lying unter the suyari. During this movement the spear tips don't alter their heigt.

Now the suyari thrusts forward applying pressure onto the ura-sickle of the kamayari. He is aiming at the maemen of the kamayari. The kamayari just endures the pressure until the suyari is fully extended (this is the moment the suyari is weakest)). He then steps to the right with his right foot pushing the suyari to the ground with his left sickle before applying surikomi towards the suyari's left hand (with his left sickle again) while stepping forward with his left foot.

Both then disengage and return to their starting positions.
