SHODEN WAZA:

 

 

Seiza Hidari ("Kneeling Left") is performed with the practitioner seated in seiza facing left. Attacked from the right, the iaidoka performs nukitsuke while stepping forward with the right foot. As in mae and migi, the sword is raised over the head (furikaburi) and the attacker is dispatched with kirioroshi. Chiburi is followed by noutou with the right foot back.
