Fig. 1 Start Fig. 2 Boken Raised Fig. 3 Cut

  1. Fig. 1 shows the start with Uke and Nage spaced so that their Boken do not quite touch.
  2. In Fig. 2 Uke and Nage have raised their Boken to cut.
  3. Fig. 3 shows Uke and Nage both striking. Nage has stepped to Nage's right and cut Uke's head because the Uke's left wrist is not considered as good a target. Uke's strike has missed Nage because of Nage's movement to the side.
