Arrgh. I had this perfectly envisioned in my mind as a kick with the
*front* leg, a lunge of sorts. Actually, on further reflection, I guess this
comes out as a slash. I guess I also meant "tripedal" for the stance.
I have around 20 years in martial arts and the way my mind is seeing this
is probably drawing too much from the human form.
