Tegatana dosa (手刀動作) incorporate key principles of seven sword cuts and comprise five sets of movements (each with a count from one to eight, four right side, four left). The first two sets are sword based atemi. The remaining sets contain within them key sword hand/arm and body movement principles that are to be found again and again in the koryu kata. Again the feet are moved with tsuki-ashi, or sliding steps remaining in contact with the floor, so as to retain good solid balance.
