Hiki Waza

Hiki Waza
* Sho Men strike
* Move in to tai atari
* Give a slight push to make a little room while lifting right foot
* Bring right foot down as I strike sho-men, using foot to jump backwards
* Bring shinai up to jodan after strike

Other Things
* Keep correct footwork - I was sometimes letting my left foot get ahead of my right, and I ended up gashing the hell out of my toe when my back foot collided with my partner's lead foot. MFer needs to trim his toe-nails.
* Tai Atari - From waist rather than chest or shoulder height. Use hips for power.
