Yes it's suriashi. Also you mentioned ayumiashi and my question is rather about it.
Ah, sorry. Ayumiashi is simply normal walking. Nanba walking was a method of coordinating the arms and legs differently. I believe the Yagyu Shingan Ryu guys still teach it, but it was a specialized method for walking in armor (if my pathetic excuse for a memory serves me correctly).
