  1. Start from a standing position.

  2. Squat by flexing your knees deeply.

  3. Walk/run forward beginning with long steps. Be sure to keep your feet in front of your body and not wide to the sides.

  4. As you go forward, continuously draw your sword; do not stop at any point.

  7. Step with your left leg to your right, step with your right leg forward and kirioroshi.

  8. Perform o chiburui and noto. Remain standing.
