Background of Morote-tsuki, sixth sword drawing kata

This Iaido kata is a Japanese sword drawing kata standardized by the Japanese Kendo federation in the late 20th century.

Description of Morote-tsuki, sixth sword drawing kata

In the sixth setei gata the swordsman walks and is confronted by several opponents. The swordsman initiates a diagonal cut to the head of the front opponent and then stabs him with two hands (morote tsuki) at the mid section (suigetsu). The swordsman then turns 180° and cuts the opponent behind him with a downward cut. The swordsman now turns and finishes the first opponent with a downward overhead cut. The swordsman then shakes the blood of the blade (chiburi) and sheathes the sword (noto).
