Katory Shinto Ryu
Dear I hope you can help me with the following question.
I have noticed that in the Katori Shinto Ryu when taking the right hand towards the Katana to grab it and then unsheat it, they do it with the palm up.

What is the name of this technical gesture of bringing his hand palm up in Japanese?

I hope my question is understood. Thanks for worrying.

Attached youtube video where you see the technical gesture before taking the katana.

There is much better place to ask such questions. On the FB there is a private group Koryu Bujutsu managed by very advanced koryu students.

Andres the palm up gesture is symbolic of pushing the sleeves of a long kimono back out of the way so as not to interfere with the draw, not a technique per se.
