Moving techniques

- Tsugi ashi : One foot always in front. At every move, the foot that’s in the back moves forth until it gets to the heel of the leading foot.

- Hanmi : The attacking foot points to the opponent. The other foot keeps an open angle of about 50 to 60 degrees.

- Tora bashiri :Litterally « Tiger’s footstep » involves taking really small but very fast steps.(cf : Oi Kaze)

- Nusumi ashi :Special technique involving a movement of the feet before moving the body in certain wazas (i.e. Oku iai).

- Seigan no ashi :Back foot at the heel of the front one.

- Hanzoroe : Back foot at the first half of the front one.

- Ni ho haba : Space between the two feet equivalent to the width of these two feet.
