Drawing the sword, we trust the opponent with sword as if twisting our elbow. Therefore, this technique has another name, “Hijinejiri-Dachi (肘捻太刀)”
This technique is used under trees, indoors, etc.
You are situations where you can not raise a sword over one’s head.
Therefore, using a cloth, we reproduce a pseudo low ceiling.
