For the presentation of the step sequences applies the following situation:
Tori forces UKE causing to set his right foot forward, by breaking UKE´s equilibrium through a backward movement and a strong arm pull forward. Here TORI sets his left foot by a big step backwards, with an offset of 90°. While TORI pulls UKE furthermore forward, he turns his right foot counterclockwise about 180° to the previous position of his left foot. This input movement is useful if TORI strongly pushed back by UKE.
Closely associated with the turn in (input) techniques are the movement patterns of the body during position changes, or quite simply, the way of walking. Distinction is made here by Tsugi ashi and Ayumi ashi.
