Re: Yokomenuchi eplaination please

It will definately affect the nature of the technique, though all of the same techniques can be done...the amount of reaction time to learning the path of the strike as well. I personally prefer starting yokomenuchi from the forehead, and I am most familiar with that method. I have seen others...for what those instructors wish to accomplish, I assume it does just fine.

I agree with Ron. I do it his way now. I did learn it the other way at first, but coming from the forehead is more in line with a sword cut.
