Placed on the left, the usual positioning for drawing, the sword signifies some hesitancy or hostile intent. Never place the edge and handle near or toward a host. This is considered an insult.

3-13 Aikido Weapons Techniques 3-14 3-15 3-16 Basic Strikes Besides the tsuki (straight thrust) and the horizontal slide, the other three basic strikes are the shomen-uchi (overhead downward strike), the yokomen-uchi (diagonal strike), and the low sweep. Shomen-Uchi From the front ready position (Figure 3-17), inhale while raising the jo by keeping your arms relaxed and rotating from the shoulders directly up the centerline.

Allow your weight to settle to the underside. Extend k:i through the arms and into the sword, controlling the tip. This is the best defensive stance, since it places the sword between the attacker and the intended target. Slight movements allow the sword to be utilized to block or parry. Slight forward movement allows the blade to be used for thrusting or stabbing.
