Change to starting position of kata by stepping forward four steps ending with the feet together. Move the right foot back and to the left. Rotate to the rear on the balls feet and pull the right foot back to be even with the left. 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).
