Kamae Kata Posture Forms These 5 Kamae should be practiced with Metsubushi and Shuriken concealed inside your jacket, and with the Ninja-To ninja sword inside your Obi at your left hip.
Ichi no Kamae Hira no Kamae No. The feet are approximately 2 to 3 feet apart with about a 1 inch gap between. The front foot left is angled very slightly to the right.
This is not noticeable to the Uke. The back foot right points 45 degrees to the rear. Lower your centre of gravity as much as is comfortable this takes time. Your knees should hide your feet if you are looking down important point. Make sure the knees are not buckling inwards to take the strain. This will hurt initially but the pain is temporary and, if practiced correctly, will build strong legs. This is an important point.
Your back needs to be angled along the line of this Kamae you do this by leaning your body slightly back, then with a feeling of rotating your lower torso clockwise to the point when the hips lock This will ensure that the back is straight. Make sure your backside is not sticking out. This is a common mistake and should be corrected from the start. Keep your shoulders relaxed and do not hunch them. Your left arm is pointed to the Ukes chest with a slight bend at the elbow so the arm is not locked the Kanji for Ichi is a horizontal line, so your lead hand should emulate this.
The hand is held in such a way that your palm is obscured from the Ukes vision. The fingers are held straight and together no tension. Do not open them. The left hand should be roughly perpendicular to the left foot. The right hand is held about a fist width away from the chin again your palm is hidden.
Both hands resemble a loose Shuto fist. Remember, keep the shoulders relaxed. Your head and neck should follow the line of your spine with the head facing forwards. Do not tilt your head to the side. Fix your eyes on the Uke. Take all tension out of your body and relax. This is Hidari left Ichi no Kamae. Do this on the other side also Migi right Ichi no Kamae. Kuden The feeling for this Kamae is not allowing the Uke to get close to you. Hira Ichimonji no Kamae Flat No. One Posture From Shizen no Kamae step out to the side so that the feet are open slightly over shoulder width apart.
Drop your weight a little to unlock the knees. The arms are held horizontally out to your sides with your elbows unlocked. The hands are held out, and slightly forward and raised to roughly the level of your eyes you should just about see them in your peripheral vision. Your neck and head are straight and facing forwards.
Take all the tension out of your body. Kuden The feeling of this Kamae is either gently wrapping the Uke up, allowing the Ukes force to go by, or confining the Ukes movements.
Straighten your back so it is upright, neck straight, and head straight. Your lead hand. Drop your weight slightly, body on a 45 degree angle with your head forwards. Kuden The feeling for this Kamae is to be able to scatter Metsubushi in all directions and then to escape using Goton no Jutsu.
Ton-So no Kamae Escaping Posture This Kamae is similar to Ichi no Kamae with the following differences Your leading hand is placed inside your jacket this is in readiness to throw Metsubushi or Shuriken to the front and the back hand is either supporting the lead hand underneath the outside of the jacket, or kept on the sword.
The intention with this Kamae is to attack the Uke with Metsubushi or Shuriken, and then escape to the rear with Goton no Jutsu. Begin in Ichi no Kamae. The Uke begins in Daijodan no Kamae. As the Uke cuts in with Kara Take Wari, step slightly forwards and to the left with the left foot and drop down to the floor onto the right knee.
Place your hands either side of the Ukes right foot, or strike to the foot with the back of the right Shuko. The moment you hit the floor, this should happen all at once. Land and immediately roll backwards to a position of safety and return to Ichi no Kamae. A couple of important points to learn is the correct distance for entering in you need to be at a distance where the Uke cannot counter cut so position yourself so you can control the Ukes hands with your shoulder if necessary.
It is also fine to move to the right of the Uke in this form. Same technique only this time step to the right with the right foot, drop down to the left knee and hands to the floor in between his feet. Lastly, keep in mind that you can pick up dirt as you drop down and use it as Metsubushi. As the Uke cuts in with Kara Take Wari, Kiai as you move forwards with the right foot and drop down to the left knee. Then, strike with a right Shikan Ken to the Ukes Suigetsu. If the distance is closer, step off a little to the left with the left foot and drop down to the right knee, and strike the same way.
Then, roll to the right side Yoko Kaiten and at the same time strike slap down to the Ukes right Toki top of the foot with the left Shuko, and to the Ukes left Toki with the right Shuko. Roll to a position of safety and return to Ichi no Kamae. An important point here is to be underneath the Ukes arms, not his sword when he cuts. Also, the strike down to Toki can be replaced with clawing to the Ukes ankles as you roll past them. Use this as strategy.
Ichi no Kamae No. One Posture The feeling with this technique is of not letting the Uke approach. Use this technique to practice striking the Uke with Shuto Ken. As the Uke cuts with Kara Take Wari, leap left or right past the Ukes sword using Taihen Jutsu and land to strike with either Ura Shuto or Omote Shuto if you are in Ichi no Kamae with left foot forwards, leap in to the left with the left foot forwards, and at the same time bring the left Shuko.
If you are in Ichi no Kamae with the right foot forwards, use Marutobi circular leaping by springing off the left foot back foot in a clockwise direction to the left Ukes right side. As you do this, the right Shuko covers from potential attack and the left strikes with Omote Shuto to either Kasumi or Uko.
From there leap back into Ichi no Kamae and then Zanshin. Remember, there are 4 strikes to train in total. Begin in Ichi no Kamae right hand forward.
As the Uke cuts with Kara Take Wari, step forwards with the left foot and bring the left hand up from below to receive the sword blade at the point just below the tsuba make sure you keep your body low and keep your fingers right back when you receive with the shuko. Then, bring the right hand on top to clamp the sword with the shuko and twist your hands to lock the sword.
Lastly, strike the Uke to Jinchu with a right Ura Shuto. This is all that is written in the scroll. This is the variation After the Ura Shuto, put the right hand back on top of the sword and move it slightly to your left side, then kick the Uke to either Suigetsu or Kinteki. As the Uke falls, step back with the right foot trap the sword handle underneath your right arm press it between your arm and your body. From this position you can cut the Uke.
Yoko-Geri Horizontal Kick The important point to this technique is how to kick accurately. Begin in Hira Ichimonji no Kamae. The Uke begins in Seigan no Kamae. The Uke thrusts with the sword. At that instant, step forwards to the left and lower your kamae at the same time by dropping your hips your body twists slightly clockwise. From here, kick with the right foot to the Ukes hands to knock the sword away. Then as the foot lands, strike to Suigetsu with Shikan Ken.
With this technique, remember to stay in a low posture throughout the technique. Itto-Giri One Sword Cut The important point of this technique is how to hold the sword and how to cut with the sword whilst wearing Shuko.
Instead of grasping the sword handle with your fingers, use the hooks of the Shuko instead. The Uke begins in Dai Jodan no Kamae. The important point of this technique is pulling yourself up in one motion.

This is applicable to Kasane Dori also. Jump up and place the left elbow on the wall and the right arm over the wall. This is to hoist your self up onto the wall.
