So the basic ski cut, thrusting cut, is from Saiga No Kami and, again, you just want to step forward and thrust through the heart. Okay? Shift your weight forward completely onto the front foot and thrust through about to the heart level. And you also want to be mindful of keeping your head somewhat down which we'll explore later in other techniques, but this is just a basic side view of the forward thrust, keeping my head somewhat down.
