Toyama Ryu Kata - Sambon Me (#3)
Sambon Me (三本目) Hidari No Teki (左の敵)
#3 Enemy to the left
Change to starting position of kata by turning and stepping backwards to the left with the left foot. Take two more steps ending with both feet together. When moving, the left hand should move to the top of the saya (scabbard) with the thumb holding the tsuba (guard) to keep the katana in place. The thumb should be offset from the ha (edge). Stand relaxed with both feet even and the hands down at the sides and slightly forward. The knees should be slightly bent.
