Here's my sentence. It's describing an attack.


I know what everything else means but does anyone know what 「かかと」 means? I've never seen it before.

  • What does your dictionary say about かかと or かかと落とし? (Wait, does it really say 落してで, not 落としで?)

  • I used jisho.org and put the whole sentence in. So, It read the individual hiragana as a particle

かかと means a heel, and かかと落とし (or かかと落し when a okurigana is partly dropped; lit. "heel drop") is a common word that means axe kick.

See: What's the difference between 落す and 落とす?
