9. Hikiotoshi

Hozoinryu Takadaha Sojutsu Training Kata Ura Hikiotoshi

In the ninth form of the ura set the kamayari parries a thrust to his maemen with hikiotoshi, blocks a thrust to his right thigh in gedan and counters another thrust to his maemen with surikomi.

Der Suyari begins in gedan, the kamayari starts from jōdan.

On the third step the suyari thrusts towards the kamayari's maemen. The kamayari answers this thrust with hikiotoshi that batters the suyari to the ground. Immediately the suyari thrusts to the rear thigh of the kamayari who blocks this thrust in gedan by raising his right hand which brings the tip of his spear down. In this position the sickles have to stand vertical.

Now the suyari retreats two steps bringing his spear into yarigamae during the first one. The kamayari pursues two steps bringing his spear into yarigamae as well and his right sickle over the suyari.

At the end of his second step backward the suyari again thrusts towards the maemen of the kamayari who steps into this thrust with okuriashi and slides his right sickle along the shaft of the suyari towards his opponents left hand (surikomi).

Then both disengage and return to their starting positions.
