Background of Soete zuki, ninth 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 Soete zuki, ninth sword drawing kata

In the ninth seitei gata, while walking, the swordsman is confronted on his left side with one opponent. The swordsman turns 45° to his left, cuts the opponent's right shoulder and chest, stabilizes the blade between forefinger and thumb of his left hand and thrusts to his opponents abdomen in a horizontal stab (Tsuki) but with only a sliding step (tsugi ashi). The swordsman then practices Zanshin using a pause before shaking of the blood (chiburi) of the blade. The chiburi is done simultaneously while stepping the left leg backward. The swordsman then sheathes the sword.
