Kote Uchi - The attack

The second movement is intended to show how Uke can attack Nage with Kote Uchi. Nage therefore does not react.
Uke takes two steps, 1-2, lowers the bokken slightly and cuts Nage's wrist from above.
Uke is then the first to go back starting with the back foot. Only after that, Nage begins to retreat.
(For demonstration, the roles of Nage and Uke change in the video.)


2. KOTE UCHI - only attack

Do not lift or lower the Bokken to much for this attack.
A small lowering of the Bokken is sufficient. So the Bokken comes very directly over the wrist of Nage. The cut does not require any superfluous force.
