11本目 — men no zangeki ni taishi makiotoshi kote no mengeki
From hassō attack and cut men.
⇒ From chūdan step back, perform a makiotoshi and cut kote. Immediately control the right side, rotate the ishizuki and strike men.
— This kata was studied from middle school, 3rd grade.
— “Control the right side” (migi ni seisuru): close the gap so no strike can come to your right side anymore.
