In Ukenagashi ("Flowing Block") the practitioner begins in seiza facing 45 deg right. Attacked from the left, he rises during nukitsuke, and stands with the sword overhead and facing right to parry a downward cut. He then counters by shuffling to a position 45 deg left and cutting down his attacker with kirioroshi. He finishes with a "drip" chiburi and reverse noutou.
