Nukitsuke | [ ]

Nukitsuke and nukiuchi are different. “Tsuke” means you are acting to forestall an opponent’s attack before it begins. Nukiuchi on the other hand means, precisely, to cut down an opponent. Without understanding the difference between these two, your swordsmanship will not be effective.*

Instructors and students may not realize just how important they are, but here's a small example of how carefully we should pick our words. Beginners are likely to say that we pull the sword out of the scabbard, and we push it back in.
