Eiga sensei's instruction on Kirikaeshi


"Please do the kirikaeshi with Dai-Kyo-Soku-Kei
(dynamic-strong-fast-light)". ~ Eiga sensei.


#1 [After the kirikaeshi demonstration by Teramoto-sensei]

(Eiga-sensei:) That was wonderful kirikaeshi, wasn't it? First of all, what was wonderful about that was the stance. As Teramoto-sensei told at the suburi practice that you don't move the axis of your body. Although the opponent comes straight forward, the stance is that you can move any directions.


#2 Next, that was kiai! You still say, "ya… ," and "men… ." (He shows,) "Yaaaaaaaaaaaaa, Meeeeeeeeeeeeeen!!!" Show your feelings with this first strike of men. Then, because the breath should be one time, it's not that you were doing like, "men, men, men…, " but "MeeeeeenMeeeeenMeeeeeen!!!" The breath connects.

#3 And finally, that was the point of the strike. There are some people still hitting the upper side of the sinai, yet hit sure the left and right men. Also, when after you finished hitting the shinai, some people let the sinais up, rested, and said, "Ya!" However, as Tramoto-sensei did, back with zanshin, put kiai, and hit men. You are completely done until here, then, it's called "Kirikaeshi." Understood? (Students:) Yes, sir!


#4 (Eiga-sensei:) Fist, the first shout, straighten the posture, put out more kiai, correctly hit left and right men after hitting the first men with one breath, brow the last men, and show your zanshin. All right? (Students:) Yes, sir!


#5 (Eiga-sensei) One more addition! A motodachi, a person of the hit side, has to be the partner. Because you have to make a good technique together, it's not good that only the hitting side shout, "Yaaaaa!" The motodachi also shout, "Yaaaaa!" when you heard, "Yaaaaa!" Okay?


There is the phrase "Dai-Kyo-Soku-Kei." Is there any one who remember it? Means, "dynamic - strong - fast - light." Please do the kirikaeshi with Dai-Kyo-Soku-Kei. All right? (Students:) Yes, sir!
