Nekote

what is nekote?

The form of the hand is the same as Hiraken. However, this time the inside of the hand is used to attack.

Nekote literally means cat hand and can be used strike with circular motions. The back of the hand is used to drop on top of attacks.

This can be seen in kata Jitte (pages from Wado No Michi down below).
