i think that drawing sword with left foot at the fornt will produce a stronger slash than those who use right-foot drawing styles.

Actually, Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu is a fictional school used by the character Kenshin Himura in the Japanese animation, Rurouni Kenshin, a.k.a. Samurai X. The technique in question is known as the Amakekeru Ryu no Hirameki, which was used by drawing a sakabatou (reverse blade sword) from the sheath while stepping forward with the left foot and using the torque of the body to slash diagonally up at tremendous speed. Although I'm not adept in Asian sword techniques, I don't believe there is much validity in the fact that stepping with the left-foot is the best maneuver. If you try it, you'll find it's a bit awkward. Anyone can correct me if I'm wrong.

And yes, I do realize the sakabatou is also fictional. ^_^

Stepping forward with your left foot throw off your balance while drawing your blade.

Don't be too quick to draw conclusions. There are koryu which draw with the left foot forward. MJER practitioners can draw with either foot forward without losing their balance.

Hiten Mitsurugi Ryu practitioners can do pretty much whatever they want since they aren't bound by the laws of physics.

Not a conclusion just an observation.

Mr Wong, the only reason that I state that it might be a balance problem is physics. If your left leg is up and nukitsuke is preformed wouldn't the momentom from this have a tendency for someone to lean to the right a bit off balance vs. thier right leg up for support? Don't want to get detailish but that is the only reason that I stated the balance thing. Even last night I tried it a few times on both legs and "for me" having my right leg up just felt right. So why do you think the right leg is up vs. the left. The Iaido style that I practice is Muso Shinden Ryu.
