The Kagizuki is performed from the Kiba Dachi. The punching hand is held in front of the body and is bent at a ninety degree angle and slopes slightly downward. The fist is positioned in front of the nipple. The hand which is not punching is held at the hip, knuckles facing upwards.
The punch is performed by rotating the hips and hands in opposing directions, and rotating the hands over at the instant before impact. The head should be focused in the direction in which the punch is travelling.
