Video of striking diagonally from the left - short stick

The Yoko man Hidari (יוקו מן הידארי, הנבו) is a short stick (Hanbo) technique in Ninjutsu. The heavy weight of the traditional material of the Japanese short stick - Oak - makes one hand swings problematic because of the inertia of the stick.
